Painting and Drawing Workshop with
Frances Malcolm

Learn to create a successful piece of art from start to finish

We will break down the art-making process into simple steps to help you create stunning artworks. You will learn compositional skills, colour mixing and application methods to build and develop a painting.
We will touch on multiple wet media techniques, so whether you want to build your skills in acrylics, watercolour, ink and wash or oils, this is the class for you. 

Bring along some inspirational material/photographs/images you particularly like and we will work from these for your main piece. If you know the paint medium you wish to home your skills in, please bring these along also. Art Supplies are also available for purchase in store at Village Art.

Saturday 6th November  10am - 3pm     Cost $85 per person
Please enquire for more information on materials to bring.

Full Spectrum Exhibition of Work by Beatrice Bouhris

Beatrice works out of her Studio and Gallery in Golden Bay.

After visiting Barcelona sometime ago, Beatrice was captivated by the beautiful architecture and mosaic work by Antonio Gaudi, which sparked her creative path.


Beatrice creates unique, contemporary abstract art works using a wide range of materials like glass, perspex, acetate, metal and acrylic paint, combining them in an unconventional way. Experimentation and play are an important part of the creative process.


By drawing on artistic intuition and feeling, she sets the foundation for balancing and exploring form, shape, line, movement and colour to create a certain atmosphere.

Her aim is to create uplifting art inspired by nature, love and life, sometimes with a pinch of humour. 



Opening Event Saturday 16th October at 11am Village Art, Little River

Come and hear about the Artist’s inspiration and view her beautiful new pieces in person


Exhibition runs until Saturday 27th November
