Corban Estate Arts Centre presenting an exciting line up of contemporary New Zealand artists who will offer their skills and talents to stimulate and engage participants in a full-on learning experience involving exploration, pushing boundaries and having fun in the creative field.
The CEAC Summer School is set in the grounds and buildings of the historic Corban Winery in Henderson, Waitakere City. Included within the facilities, is the Gallery and Gallery Shop, located in the former Corban family homestead which exhibits a diverse range of artists.
This workshop is ideal for anyone wishing to develop a personal painting practice or who is seeking fresh stimulation. My focus is on enabling an individual’s creative journey rather than adhering to any particular technique, style or genre. I will create a structured and stimulating environment that is a safe launching space for creative experimentation. The studio practice will be accompanied by class outings, class exercises, discussions, demonstrations, readings and response sessions.
I am an experienced artist and tutor, familiar with many approaches to painting from landscape to abstraction. My philosophy is to make art from experiences that I feel passionate about. My multi media art practice combines pleasure in the purely visual with concerns as an environmentalist. I am an experienced art tutor who has facilitated numerous painting workshops.I have exhibited widely throughout New Zealand since the 70′s and am in most major national public collections including Te Papa Tongarewa, the Christchurch Art Gallery and Southland Museum and Art Gallery.
Join us in the Summer School experience and together we can create an exciting event that will expand our skills, broaden our sense of community and provide us with inspiration for a productive year ahead.
