Art on the Road | Groups
As well as conducting regular workshops at her home studio in Patumahoe and in the Waikato, Wendy teaches groups in other North Island centres by arrangement. These may be local art groups or others simply interested in ‘giving it a go’, such as corporate groups, groups of friends who have not painted since school days, and special needs groups.
Wendy will be visiting the Waikato, Coromandel, Tauranga and others regions this year, holding day and evening art classes for art groups, and groups of friends. You arrange the venue suitable for an art class (i.e. hall, club, school) and Wendy supplies all art materials. $70 per day per person, minimum of 10 people. Bring your own lunch and an apron.
It’s a great opportunity for art club members to inject new life and direction into their paintings, as well as an opportunity to invite locals to join your art group.
Wendy’s courses can be designed around your group’s needs. Here are some of the mixed media aspects you may wish to explore:
Understand color and texture
