School Holiday Workshops WEEK 2 - Abstract Painting

Monday 13 July | Wednesday 15 July

Join a Newcastle Art Gallery Educator for this free 30 minute online class using materials from around the home.

In this activity you’ll learn about Newcastle born, Adelaide based artist Tom Gleghorn and his use of abstract expressionism to create works of art, followed by a demonstration of a simple art-making activity you can do in your home by splashing, dribbling and flicking paint.

You can use a mixture of materials you might have at hand, including a large piece of paper, large paintbrushes, water pot, paint, and newspaper to cover the working area.

This event is a free Zoom webinar, bookings required.
