What's On

Forthcoming Events

GECAG generally holds two or three workshops or demonstrations each year and occasional fundraising events. In 2022 we have introduced a program of paint-outs. Please see below for details.

2022 Paint-out Program

First Saturday each month

Paint-outs are held on the first Saturday of every month and provide an opportunity for untutored plein air painting. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please register by midday on the Friday before the scheduled paint-out so we know who is attending. There is no fee for participation.

The theme will be landscape or seascape:

  1. Going bush/Australian outback

  3. On my trip/holiday memories


 Medium:  - your choice - a chance to try a new medium or use your favourite.

Entry starts at the beginning of each term and will finish just before end of term - the Term 3 challenge will close on Friday September 16th.  Photos of your entry are to be sent to gecagchallenge1@gmail.com.  Please include the title, medium, and size.
