Make art you will love!

ART SUMMER SCHOOL 2018 captures and celebrates exploration and creativity, bringing out your inner artist and fueling your passion to make art. Thea Bates of Art In An Hour and Michael O’Hanlon of Eureka have years of experience teaching and making their own visual art. They‘ll share with participants their skills and love of drawing from life, both the natural human form and costume delights. Architecture and treasures from the natural environment are also the gifts of this superb location.

For three days, feed your creativity with like-minded people in the fabulous Abbotsford Convent and its gardens on Melbourne’s famous Yarra River. Be curious, try new things, feel freedom in your art and learn from the open studio process. Try Drawing from Life, make Bespoke Brushes or expand your detailed sketches into larger than life-sized works.

You are encouraged to bring your own inks, charcoal, pencils, pastels and paper, however basic materials will provided, with a small art supplies shop on site.

Note: For Bespoke Brushes you might like to bring materials to recycle e.g. old house painting brushes, string, shoelaces, onion bags. There will be some recyclables available. A walk to the riverbank might get you all you need.

Note: Basic materials included plus, light refreshments for morning and afternoon teas. Bring your own lunch or eat at Lentil As Anything, a pay as you feel social enterprise providing vegetarian and vegan food.

Art In An Hour

Thea Bates of Art in an Hour is a qualified art teacher, visual artist and creative practitioner. She loves to engage people in their own and sometimes  suppressed creativity, offering strategies and techniques  that leave tentative artists surprised and amazed by what they can do. As well as teaching art in community settings, she loves to work with corporates, local government and small businesses, where they see the benefits to their staff wellbeing, and therefore to their business. 

Art in an Hour is essentially a ‘juicy morsel of creative mindfulness’, to which Thea brings her extensive experience  both within and outside the creative arts genre, to support participants achieve extraordinary results. One hour can become many hours; art before breakfast, art on the train. Art anywhere, anytime.
