Pastel CLASSES with Lyn

Term 3 2022
TERM DATES: TUESDAY STUDIO CLASS   6 weeks July 19 to August 23
10am-12pm (pastel)  and  1pm - 3pm (oil and/or pastel)

-STUDIO:- Mornington - Private Studio at 77A Barkly St.
Lyn will illustrate the method and the reason or steps involved, for each painting and will be there with you to discuss any issues that you encounter and/or individual assessment along the way and at the lesson's end.  
The morning class is pastel only and the afternoon class students work in either oil paint or soft pastel.
                WEDNESDAY ZOOM SESSIONS  October 12 - Dec 7
10am-1pm
Zoom Classes on offer run for 6 instructional classes with demonstration and discussion - and 3 additional personal assessment and extension lessons when you will explore the lesson concept in a  personal painting.
I was encouraged by the results of this slightly more challenging format of the classes and the resulting personal paintings. I hope you can join us.

ZOOM:-
No matter your location if you can connect to the internet you can join Lyn live in her studio. You have access to live, personal guidance
With her favourite subject – WATER in the Land/Seascape.
This term, once again is a stand alone term, that is, it is not linked to previous terms. .
Each of the 3 week painting units has several parts.

  • Two weeks,
    Lyn demonstrates and guides with a detailed demonstrations broken into parts. The students produce a study of the concept  learning from the demonstration working at their own pace starting in the lesson with a personal assessment each lesson.
    They each have access to a private web site
    where they can rewatch the study demonstrations, to check on the process or re-watch as much as they like..

  • The student then applies the learning concept to their own personal painting based on the previous lesson subject.This personal painting will give a chance to apply the processes learnt in the directed lesson. This is the important 'consolidation of learning' step from the demonstrated painting and begins to free you from the concept of needing to 'copy'.

Mornington Peninsula Annual Pre-Summer School

Fri, Sat, Sun 28,29,30 Oct 2022
3 day workshop
plein air
and studio located at 77A Barkly St Mornington

Course description
Two art tutors

Level:-  For artists with some degree of proficiency in their medium. (pastel/acrylic/watercolour)
Why venture out into the real world? Is it a venture or adventure?
There are many popular art tours happening all over the world offering to enrich the travel and share the experience of painting together.   
This workshop is for artists who are uncomfortable with the concept of painting on site.
They may feel exposed, inadequate or simply frustrated with their results.  Or maybe they just want to feel prepared.
This is time to learn how to choose, set up and capture the scene.
Lyn will demonstrate. We will paint on site in the morning then bring the work back to the studio each day
to assess results and decide what the next step might be and possibilities of improving.
It will aim to sharpen your decisions in all stages and allow you to relax with the process.
The afternoons will spring from the morning’s painting.— what is the next step?   We will all possibly have a different ‘next step’.
Lyn Mellady and Julie Goldspink will take this course and split to a max no 5 people in a group
$250 for 3 days ($220-earlybird price before Sept 5 2022)
Note-
For interstate or distant participants there is a good variety of accommodation nearby.

Pastel art workshop on the Gold Coast with Lyn Mellady. Lyn will demonstrate and explain how to paint large and small waves breaking on the shore and variations in skylight. Enjoy creating the colours and clarity of the waves and see how the direction of sunlight creates sparkle and shadow in the foam as well as the water. As you paint, you will understand the energy that shapes the wave and see how the direction and shape of strokes help with the movement of the water. This workshop is designed to allow a new pastel artist to work with ease and whether you are a beginner or advanced, enjoy and explore the possibilities and variations that nature provides.
