Drawing and Painting with Tangerine Meg

Drawing and Painting 2021

If a creative session – where you don’t have to pack up afterwards – sounds like your kind of treat, schedule in for one of my Drawing and Painting afternoons!

You get to make your very own picture! What a nourishing way to top up your mental health cup, and meet kindred spirits, too.

Check your diary dates and book now – limited spots available as class sizes are kept small!

I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to
learn how to do it.”
~ Vincent Van Gogh

With a complete exercise each session, you’ll gain experience in drawing and painting, along with a sprinkle of theory (tone, line, colour, composition, etc), art appreciation and artists’ stories – with a particular focus on giving women artists a little extra air time!
The underlying threads are self-reflection, feminism, kindness/gratitude, nature appreciation and souls gathering, sharing stories.

“It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you and
gives you a deeper meaning.”

~ Vincent Van Gogh

Schedule a regular Thursday art / self care date!

Why? The world can present an array of chaos, and we humans need down time to soothe and nourish our souls…

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

You’ll access your quiet-but-ever-present inner Bold Soul by following practical steps to create a picture … I’ll demonstrate, then guide you to create your own artwork each session.

Why Tangerine Meg (yours truly)?

I’m a practising artist now, and lucky me went to art lessons from the age of 7 with beloved SA Art World  legend, Ruth Tuck! She invited me to help with the younger students when I was in late secondary school. For the next 10-ish years I attended Ruth’s adult classes, while assisting and later 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 from a young age, along with a lifetime 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 raising 2 young men – 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… You can see why my art style is ‘graphic’!

I’ve had 3 solo art exhibitions [1 – between the arrivals of my now adult sons, 2 – at Goolwa’s Old Police Station in 2016, and 3 – in SALA 2020 at Mockingbird Lounge, Glenelg – art lifting hearts through the pandemic!], and too many group exhibitions to recount! I work from South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, a friendly black cat my sunny studio companion.

I’d love to pass on to you some of the learnings and enjoyment I’ve been lucky enough to experience!
