Inspire Series

Join us for an exclusive tour of McCahon: Gate lll with our director Andrew Clifford, then create a mixed-media painting inspired by our local environment. Map out lines with graphite to create interesting compositions, then layer earthy pastels to develop textures and tonal contrasts. A paint finish will heighten definition. Enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles while you get creative.
