Put aside a little time for yourself

There’s something art can do
for the soul that you can’t really put into words.”
~ David Hockney

Reserve a couple of regular dedicated hours to learn and practise a new skill! Join us in a range of Bold Art lessons – with a small group of kindred spirits who also want to get some creative practice back into their lives.

You will access your inner Bold Soul by following very practical steps. I will do a demonstration, then guide you to make your own drawing and painting each session.

This series is intended for age 18 and over. No previous drawing experience necessary. Materials provided. Simply turn up each Thursday, in Not Too Precious clothes or a good protective apron … bring your favourite tea bag if you like :)

Why me (Tangerine Meg)?

I went to Ruth Tuck’s legendary SA art lessons from the age of 7. Ruth invited me to help with the younger students in my final year of secondary school. For the next 10-ish years I attended Ruth’s adult classes, while assisting then teaching the younger kids. Thanks to the mentorship of Ruth and her teachers, an appreciation of garden variety beauty and a love of glorious colour was awakened, along with a commitment to painting and drawing practise.

And I’ve studied Graphic Design. Twice.
The first I completed, a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) which covered design principles beautifully yet was before computers were in every room of every building, let alone every pocket … After a change of pace and 2 boys – teaching for Ruth through almost all of it – I did the majority of an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design to learn to apply computer magic to my design skills… So you can see why my art style is ‘graphic’.

I’ve had 2 solo art exhibitions – the first between the arrivals of my now adult sons and the second at Goolwa’s Old Police Station in 2016 – and too many group exhibitions to count! I work from South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, a friendly black cat my sunny studio companion.
