Studio set-up


What's included:

All painting equipment, drawing materials and protective gear will be provided. We’ve also got morning and afternoon tea covered. There is a great café in the Gasworks park or you can bring your own lunch (there’s a fridge).

For those interested in continuing their practice at home, we've included the option of buying an aerosol starter pack with your registration at a discounted price. The pack includes a box of six spray cans, a respirator, a painting board and a nozzel pack. Packs will also be available for purchase on the day of the workshop at a cost of $130 and so will individual cans of spray paint. Only cash will be accepted on the day.


PLEASE NOTE: Your health and safety is our foremost concern. We provide masks and other protective gear for mandatory use while painting, and dedicate a portion of the workshop to health and safety guidelines while using aerosols. While we take every precaution to minimize health and safety risks associated with spray painting throughout this workshop, spray paint may still pose a risk to some people, and students of this workshop are advised that they participate at their own risk. You will be required to sign a waiver for this course.
