CAW/ASOC Special Workshops and Events Success

Amanda McLean's Pastel workshop with ASOC in CAW Studio

We have enjoyed an enthusiastic response to our Special Events and Workshops Program since announcing our new collaboration to offer all members of Canberra Art Workshop and the Artists Society of Canberra the same registration prices to attend them.

Archibald finalist, and area resident Kerry McInnis will be teaching a fully subscribed Mixed Media workshop for CAW in early June.

ASOC hosted an Amanda McLean Pastel workshop in mid May (pictured), which was at capacity and members of the two organisations enjoyed mingling and learning together from her.

CAW invited Roger Beale in late April to present his Pastel working method and he also displayed some of his work (one of which sold on the day with a percentage of the proceeds donated to CAW.)

Members joined Mark Dober for some Plein Air Painting near the studio in early May, which was arranged by ASOC.

For more information about our upcoming workshops and events, please check out our Events Page, and follow our Facebook page.
