About the Tutor: Christine Porter

Christine Porter is a full-time professional artist living now in Lismore, northern NSW. She is a painter, printmaker, teacher and writer. Her paintings tell visual stories of rural Queensland, concentrating on artwork about the sheep and wool industries; her etchings tell a more personal narrative.

Christine considers teaching an important part of her practice and has, over the last thirty something years taught painting, printmaking and art-business from kindy through university level and various adult classes.

Her artwork is in the national gallery of Australia, as well as other smaller public, private and collections worldwide. She has won more than 300 prizes for her paintings and etchings, including the McGregor Fellowship for travel to the UK. She is an elected member of the Australian Watercolour Institute and has taught throughout Australia, and across the Tasman.

Her August exhibition “Nundubbermere” at the Stanthorpe Regional Gallery in August 2021, will be her 40th solo exhibition.

Christine Porter: artist and educator

Bachelor of Visual Arts. Diploma of Teach, AWI*

The art world is diverse. There is no longer one right way to make art. Which means that the information we have access to can be confusing at best, and contradictory at worst.

Even for those of us lucky enough to get to an art school, the agenda there is so often led by academia, fashion or commerce. However, being successful as an artist is not dependent on formal art education, though there is certain information that we needn’t reinvent each time, not least the pictorial tools to help us tell our visual stories more efficiently.

To that end, the teaching I do is about demystifying the inherited art-speak of a traditional art teaching system as well as translating the art-jargon of the contemporary. It’s about clarifying and simplifying: using language that makes sense in our own world.

My students are often busy, enthusiastic, emerging or hobby artists who are eager for information, but may be overwhelmed by the large, black hole that is the internet. Or they are practicing artists who want more. Often-times they are isolated by geography, demography, or performance anxiety.

To a person they want tools to make the process of making art more enjoyable, and the results more effective.

I teach the way I like to learn: information, strategies for storing it, structured exercises for exploring it, ways of applying it to my work, and individual feedback. I have experience as a teacher that began in the classroom back in the 80’s, and in the last thirty years has included work with school groups, adult groups, a semester in the university system, my own art school. My painting practice was honed in the dusty isolation of western Qld and has since 1990 been full-time and self-supporting. Teaching is an important element. My own learning through hours at the easel, within a university visual arts degree, via toastmasters, masterclasses, mentors, are all grist to this particular creative mill.

Inherent in my teaching are elements relating to being an art professional: copyright, integrity, conservation and more. As topics arise, so too do discussions about exhibiting, presentation, artist statements etc. Always I encourage students to contact me if there is an art-profession issue that arises after our workshop.
