Art Groups

The Canberra Art Workshop convenes untutored Art Groups throughout the year. Art Group participants must be financial members of CAW.

A limit of 14 participants per group (plus a model) has been imposed during the COVID pandemic.CAW is also required to have a list of studio attendees at all times. Hence, online bookings are essential, please. Art group bookings are non-refundable.

Art groups are managed by volunteer convenors. You will find their contact details on the relevant art group page. They would welcome your call if you have any questions about how the art group operates, what you need to bring etc.

The Groups are either subject or medium-specific and cover the full range of visual artistic expression and media. Media focused groups include printmaking and pastel. In the Experimental and ExploARTive groups, participants use a variety of media. There are also seven life drawing / portraiture groups to choose from. Participants also use a variety of media in these groups.
