We'll begin our afternoon together in Hindmarsh Park, Kiama at the Girl Guides Hall. On our walk, I'll introduce you to some of my favourite features of Kiama - the ocean rock pools along Black Beach or our heritage 'Terraces' (repurposed miners cottages) along with other surrounding coastal colonial architecture. After our walk I'll provide afternoon tea made up of cakes sourced from a local bakery, this should give us the energy hit we need to begin our painting class! In this experience I will introduce you to illustration as though you are a beginner and together we will explore colour, shape, composition and the craft of painting. I will provide some ideas and templates for projects based on your artistic skills. Everyone is welcome! Using inspiration from our walk through Kiama, I will help you to create illustrations on beautiful archival-quality paper. The illustrations we create will be basic but brilliant, fresh and playful. At this workshop you’ll learn about composition, colour and pattern layering and how to work Gouache and paper most effectively. Remember to wear something you’re prepared to get paint on and get ready to get your hands dirty and colourful.
My name is Jackie Mostek and I am an illustrator and ceramicist. I grew up in Kiama and still live nearby. I studied painting and printmaking at the local university, and my final works were exhibited nationally as a part of the National Graduate Show. Since then, I've discovered a love of clay, and I sell my illustration and ceramic work online.
