Started: 28 Mar 2019 18:30
Finished: 28 Mar 2019 20:30

Join us for an evening of art making and conversation.

Olivia Azzopardi is a young Cairns-based artist who often works under the name Oh Jayne. Having recently completed a Diploma of Visual Arts at TAFE Far North she creates artworks inspired by her surrounding environment. Her fine and detailed illustrations frequently incorporate local tropical fauna and flora combined with imaginative elements.


"Im deeply interested in experimenting with tonal value and form inspired by the Baroque period while, simultaneously intertwining the simplicity of minimalism and Bauhaus sculpture and design."

"In this workshop you will learn simple and fun drawing techniques and exercises to break down that creative block, tapping into the imagination more quickly. We'll also work with graphite and tackle a still-life scene, approaching it with some easy drawing methods. We will discuss perspective and tonal techniques. Even if you haven’t picked up a pencil since high school, come along and have a go to improve your drawing skills."
