Linda will be conducting a number of painting workshops in her Melbourne studio during the first half of 2017.  These workshops are strictly limited to 4 people and are designed to be an intimate and intensive learning experience.  The aim of these workshops is to explore the foundation skills that are necessary to enable artists to take their work to the next level and are suitable for beginners or artists who wish to consolidate their core painting skills.  With workshop notes and the use of a large range of materials included in the price, it’s a great opportunity to try out a range of art materials and techniques without the upfront purchase cost.

The dates for 2017 are listed below.  Places in these workshops fill up fast so you will need to email Linda at lmacaulay64@gmail.com and pay your non-refundable deposit to secure your place.  All studio workshops for 2017 are fully booked.  Please join Linda’s subscription list to be advised of future workshops.
