Where: NGV International (St Kilda Road) Meet at Information Desk, Ground Level

Immerse yourself these school holidays in the colourful world of paint with artist Nic Plowman. Finesse your painting skills through a series of live demonstrations and practical exercises designed to build knowledge and confidence in paint handling, colour mixing and linear and tonal drawing methods.

Working off reference images supplied from the NGV Collection, or bring along your own selfies or portrait images, learn about the proportional and structural elements of the human head and create your own preparatory drawing. Participants will then use these drawings as a launching point to explore paint techniques to create their own colourful work of art.

Nic Plowman is a graduate of the University of Southern Queensland, who specializes in drawing, painting, print making and sculpture. His work is largely autobiographical and explores themes of mortality, fear and triumph.

This program is suitable for teens aged 13 – 17 and is fully supervised.
