Get some colour

We going to start something a little different to the usual. On the 18th of February we are going to be running a Watercolour class, now i know it’s a bit weird for a club that fundamentally bases itself on it’s commitment to the monochromatic to blow out into pigmentation but what is probably even more weird is that during this course we are going to move away from focusing so much on the wine tasting ( there will still be wine but it won’t be taught, and the wine will be chosen according to what the students like and the weather).

This course will focus on water based media, colour and paper! and drinking good wines.

Course details…

Dates: Tuesday 18th of February till the Tuesday 11th of March.

Times: 6:30 till 8:30

Cost: $ 320 

Location: FOOLSCAP studios Lvl 3, 75-77 Hardware Lane.

Payment: To secure a place , please email us, there are only a few spots in the class, we are not able to provide refunds or exchanges. We require payment upfront. For questions or enrollment please email us greyeyesociety@gmail.com 

Drawing in 2014

I hope you guys all had a great New Year. I feel like there is going to be  a lot of drawing this year, i’ve been noticing it everywhere i go, already i’ve seen old ladies pulling out their pencil and pads in their front yards and cafe goers starting to draw their surroundings. 

Maybe some Plein-air, post- impressionist phantoms are trying to get me back in the class room teaching sooooo… 

We are starting up our first drinking club with a drawing problem course of 2014 on the 15th of January. The course like the previous courses will run every wednesday for five weeks from the Wednesday the 15th of January through to the 12th of February (this includes the 12th of February.

A teaser for the topics for our upcoming grey eye society wine and drawing course, can you guess who all the artists are? can you imagine what wine would suit their life, history or origin?

We have put together our next class for grey eye society. These images will hint at who the five artists for the next course will be. Our next classes will begin on the 24th of July and run till the 21st of August (inclusive). This post is only a little teaser, more details will be up in the next week or so.
