Ongoing Beginners Botanic Art Workshop 
The Next Step with Dianne Emery
This four-day workshop has been specifically designed for those who have completed a Beginners' Workshop with the Melbourne Friends, or an equivalent course, and wish to further their botanical art skills. Those who are unable to join a regular class may like to take this opportunity to continue their studies.
Dianne will help her students to refresh and extend the drawing and painting techniques learnt in the first workshop and look in more detail at composition, colour, and brush and pencil skills. She will also cover the use of aids such as masking fluid, 'paint removing' sponges and brushes, and demonstrate effective ways to fix mistakes such as lost highlights and other mishaps. The cost of the course includes materials to be used during the workshop.
Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available but students will need to provide their own lunch.
