Event Details

PAINTING MODERNISM

In conjunction with O’Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism, Heide presents a series of oil-painting workshops focusing on the techniques and ideas developed by each of these three ground-breaking artists. Aimed at introducing participants to innovative approaches to modern painting, these artist-led workshops will concentrate on a different theme each week. In each session participants will view and discuss selected works within the exhibition prior to commencing an oil painting in Heide’s beautifully situated Education Centre. All materials are provided. Suitable for all skill levels, no prior painting experience required. 

 

PAINTING MODERNISM: STILL LIFE STUDIES

Saturday 19 November, 10am -1.00pm

Still-life painting underwent a radical revamp under modernism as space became flatter and patterns became bolder. Experiment with modernist approaches to still life in this fun oil-painting workshop.


PAINTING MODERNISM: THE LURE OF LANDSCAPE

Saturday 26 November, 10am -1.00pm

Making paintings of the land in which they lived was central to the practice of artists Georgia O’Keeffe, Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith, who each developed studies made plein air into sophisticated studio paintings. Spend the morning developing sketches of the Heide gardens into modernist landscape paintings, full of vibrant colour and atmosphere.

 

PAINTING MODERNISM: PICTURES OF PEOPLE

Saturday 3 December, 10am -1.00pm

Modernism ushered in exciting styles of dress and society fashions that were captured by artists in that most enduring of art forms, the portrait. Learn the techniques of modernist portraiture, from how to light the face to how to use colour to suggest mood, in this painting workshop.

 

PAINTING MODERNISM: ATMOSPHERIC ABSTRACTIONS

Saturday 10 December, 10am -1.00pm

The invention of abstraction was modernism’s great and lasting break with tradition, and artist Georgia O’Keeffe was at the vanguard when she painted her early abstractions. Explore O’Keeffe’s approaches to abstraction through a series of colour exercises and paintings using the shapes and forms of the Heide garden as inspiration.
