Bonus Koi Fish Art Workshop!

August 26, 2013

I am busily putting together Living Learning’s Term 4 Program, it should be out in a week or so. Seeing as we have the very talented artist and lovely homeschooling mama Louise Kirby visiting the mountains from the Clarence Valley in October we’ve decided to run an extra art workshop next term at Wild Valley Art Park in Wentworth Falls.

321 Blaxland Rd Wentworth Falls

This workshop has a few sections, the kids are initially guided through a drawing process to produce a lively koi carp, swimming or leaping from the water. Once they are happy with their drawings they will trace the outlines with a waterproof pen and complete the drawing.

Whilst the ink dries we will take a short break, then we begin colouring the fish using tonal water colour pencils and discussing the koi and their mythology and symbolism and also talking about how colours work to give depth and life to your picture.

At the completion of the workshop your child will have completed art work on a board to take home and frame or just hang as is.

Cost for tuition and all materials for the 3hr session is $32 per child.

To book your place email Julie at and you will be sent payment details

If you are interested please book ASAP as payments will be due by 15th of September to allow time for Louise to order materials.  While Louise is visiting she will also be running a handmade bookmaking workshop for adults on the 23rd of October.  Let me know by email if you would like more information about this workshop too.

Best end of winter wishes,
