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.
Winter Art Challenge
GECAG has introduced an Art Challenge for its members and 'The Winter Art Challenge' (Term 3)
The theme will be landscape or seascape:
- Going bush/Australian outback
- Harbour view
- 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 email@example.com. Please include the title, medium, and size.
Cost: $5 (via Trybooking link below) for 1 entry and $10 if you wish to enter more than one theme. You must be a financial member to enter.
One of our tutors will judge each Challenge selecting 3 winners and providing a short critique on the three paintings chosen.
Craig Penny who normally tutors the Thursday Acrylic and Watercolour class will judge the Winter challenge
Good luck and have fun. We look forward to seeing your entries.
