Canberra Art Workshop is a thriving studio centre for the arts in the M16 Artspace. We welcome all artists, from complete beginners to practicing professionals. You’ll find a work group that’s right for you –  life drawing, pastel, watercolour, portraiture, printmaking and other subjects – all run in Canberra Art Workshop’s studio (see the Workgroups page for details about work groups). Our address is 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, behind the Griffith shops.

As well as the self-help work groups, we also hold exhibitions, workshops, courses of tuition, group shows, and paint-away events in various regional locations throughout the year.

Portrait Making – How and Why

Exhibition Dates – August 28-30 from 12-5pm

With an Opening Reception Thursday, 27 August at 6pm

M16 Artspace, Workspace A, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith ACT

 

Drawing and painting from live models attracts this group of portrait artists to the Canberra Art Workshop studio at the M16 Artspace each week. Members use water and oil based paints, pastels, pencil and charcoal or whatever medium takes their fancy. Some works on display ended when the model session concluded while others were studio adjusted. Many members take on a variety of portrait projects beyond the workgroup and some welcome commissions.

This group of artists are drawn to portraiture for a variety of reasons, from the challenge of capturing a likeness to the experience of being in collaboration with a model to generate art that interprets a mood or tells a human story. While the challenge of the art process is motivating, they also extoll the therapeutic benefits of focusing on their work and of learning from each other as they work together.

The informal exhibit also touches on different approaches used to create some of the portraits on display.
