The Macro Floral Painting Workshop scheduled for Saturday 25 March booked out so fast we decided to open another workshop for those who missed out. It will be held on Sunday 9 April 2017.


You are welcome to join us for a creative day in the studio to make a beautiful, large-scale floral painting. Tracey has many years of art making and teaching experience and will guide you through the steps to create your own art work. Even if you haven’t painted before you can do this! It is suitable for senior secondary school students as well.

Acrylic paints, brushes, water containers, a flat paint palette, cloths.   Please wear old clothes and an apron.  

Lunch and drink. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Bring an image of a flower that you would like to paint.  Print one ¼ and another ½ an A4 page size. 

When choosing an image please consider the following points.
Use a good quality photograph, probably from the internet. Please don’t use an image of someone’s painting.
Consider selecting an image with:
an asymmetrical view, not symmetrical unless the flower looks better viewd symetrically.
a variety of tones– from dark to light
a variety of shapes – nothing too regular.
You may or may not complete the painting during the six hour workshop.  Many do.
It will depend on your style of painting, the amount of experience you have, the size of the canvas, brush sizes you use,  how focused you are and how quickly you paint.
Some participants need to complete their work later at home.
