Tutor in Residence
Charles Sluga from Yackandandah
Charles Sluga is an internationally recognised professional watercolourist, highly regarded for his unique vision and versatility in the medium.
Charles is an enthusiastic, popular and passionate teacher and runs workshops all over Australia and overseas and has led eight painting tours to Europe. He has been invited to be represented at the New York Art Expo and is featured in the American Watercolor Book - Splash 11. He was recently featured in the American watercolour magazine titled Watercolor Artist. Charles is also one of the featured artists on the Winsor and Newton website and is one of the few artists represented in their latest catalogue.
As the title suggests, this workshop is about maximum results in the ten days. If you are sick of fiddling with paint, procrastinating and want to go beyond the mere prosaic, come along and break through the barrier.
The first half will concentrate on developing skills in tone, colour and technique through demonstrations, lectures and exercises. Works will vary in subject and style. In the second half you will be developing your own paintings from your own source material with Charles acting as a mentor (note: other mediums may be applied to the watercolour if deemed necessary). This is not just a “how to” course but a “how to think” course.
