Tutor in Residence
Maryika Welter, Goombungee
Maryika is an award winning Queensland based artist, born and raised in country Victoria. Short listed for the Prometheus and The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prizes. Her passion is tutoring workshops and uses mixed mediums with an interest in creativity, textures, design, colour and printmaking. She has studied the Visual Arts Diploma at South Queensland Institute of TAFE and attended the North Adelaide School of Art. Maryika has exhibited in Hong Kong, Germany, Italy and extensively in Australia. In 2009 she was selected to represent Australia at the Florence Biennale. Her works are also represented in public and private collections in both Australia and overseas.
Students will be asked to ‘let go’ and stretch their comfort zones in approaches to their own work styles, subject matter and thinking processes. Through demonstrations we will explore a mixture of techniques and mediums tapping into the intuitive and creative process of making art and painting in a playful manner. Creating art is an activity that relies on the extremes of spontaneity and discipline. Rules are meant to be broken. Journal and/or personal diary work will support the more practical aspect of gathering information, self-expression and concept development. A series or sequence of works will be produced giving voice to the individuals’ perception and personal experiences.
