Brisbane Art Student Tour
What a day! We met at the Baptist Hinterland Church, so that we could all go together in a 12 person minibus. And what a pleasant drive, the weather was great and traffic much better than expected.
Our first stop was at the Lethbridge Gallery which showed the acrylic work of Scott McDougall.
Next stop GOMA, although quite disappointing, as we hadn’t enough time to see anything significant, we have had a relaxing lunch at the GOMA’s coffee shop, enjoying each others companies and city views on the river.
We then had our last stop at the Art Shed to enjoy a free 2 hour demonstration with Lyn Diefenbach. Lyn shared her knowledge while painting an Australian native scene in oil. It is always amazing to watch professional artists at work, that alone would have been worth going.
Here are just a few points interesting points we have learned today:
If you remember any more interesting facts we have heard or seen, I would love to hear from you, so that I can add it to the list.
We definitely have to do this again.
Let's Go Together
As promised, I have organised a very special day for my students.
A trip to Brisbane, having lunch together, share good times, see art and go to a FREE Painting Demonstration with Lyn Diefenbach at the Art Shed.
A Day of Art in Brissie, 30 September 2007
We will be starting the day visiting the Lethbridge Gallery who is one of my favourite galleries in Brisbane, as I like the skillful art Jeff is displaying. We have a sneak peak into GOMA and have lunch in one of the coffee shops there. We will finish the day with a free demonstration with Lyn Diefenback, who is an exceptional artist.
9.00am Meet at Bus
10.00am Lethbridge Gallery
2.00pm ArtShed Free Demo (2 hrs)
4.30pm Heading Home
If we get the numbers, I would like to organise a mini bus (12 people) for the day. The cost would be $15 per person incl. insurance. Otherwise we organise private cars. But I think it would be great traveling all together.
PLEASE RESERVE YOUR PLACE ASAP!
For bus bookings I need confirmation by the 24th of September. If you don't make it you still can go by car.
