Teen Painting Workshop with Holly Anderson

Back by popular demand! Learn to capture the Brisbane sunlight in this half-day painting workshop designed for teens.

How might we capture the heat of the sun on the back of the neck, the shiver of reflections in a pool’s undulating surface, a blinding sun in our eyes off the water, or the speckles that slide across our sun-soaked retinas?

In this workshop, City in the Sun artist Holly Anderson will encourage teens to contemplate the more ephemeral elements of the Brisbane landscape while exploring practical drawing and painting skills.

Suitable for all skill levels, this half-day painting workshop will provide the materials, inspiration and know-how to capture the beauty of our sparkling city.

About Holly Anderson

Holly Anderson works with painting as a practice for investigating sensory experiences with light and landscape. In continual reference to the bathers and sunlit subjects of romantic Australian landscape painting, she tentatively explores the various ways the body might be more strangely involved in its environment. In 2017, Holly completed a BFA with Honours at the Queensland College of Art in Meanjin, Brisbane where she now holds a sessional teaching position.
