Painting & Drawing: Inspirations From Mirka Mora (CAE)
To: 25 July 2021
In partnership with the CAE, we are excited to offer a unique course inspired by the art and creations of the late Mirka Mora.
The first session will be held at the Jewish Museum of Australia where you will explore MIRKA and be enthused by the fabulous works on display.
The second session will be held at the CAE. Let your Mirka inspirations take centre stage to create your own unique artwork using a variety of mediums and materials. A range of basic acrylic paints, brushes, pencils, charcoal, pastels, paper and erasers will be supplied for this workshop session.
Students are asked to please bring the following materials to the second session at the CAE:
One or more canvases of your choice in size (canvas paper, canvas board or stretched canvas)
One or more types of paper of your choice (consider whether you would like to use pencils, charcoal or pastels)
Paints, brushes, pencils and other materials you may wish to use to create your artwork.
