Welcome to Canberra Art Workshop

Patron: Cynthia Watsford, OAM


Recently,our long serving member, Jill Mail, sadly lost her husband, Allan,
to Motor Neurone Disease – a most  cruel disease.
Jill has been his staunch and long suffering carer and supporter throughout
this painful journey but never lost her impetus as an enthusiastic, hardworking
and productive CAW volunteer.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your loved ones Jill. 
Allan was blessed to have you in his life.

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 an art 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 Art Groups page for details about art groups). Our address is 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, behind the Griffith shops.

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

Canberra Art Workshop is a non-profit body. We’re self-funded; owned and operated by our members.

"It is with great regret and sadness that we report the death this morning of our mentor, teacher and friend, Patti Holden.

Patti was an amazingly creative lady: a printmaker, etcher, proficient in all the creative arts such as tapestry, dress design and tailoring and many others.

All her skills she brought to our group, sharing her expertise, her tools and her wide knowledge of printmaking with great generosity.

She will be sadly missed by our Monday morning group."
