CHAN'S PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP
As you can see from the above photos 10 very fortunate artists, and many passing pedestrians, joined Chan for his worksop on 28 September. The subject was the Albert Hall on the last day of the 2014 Spring Exhibition, although we were told not to focus on the building. The weather was superb for such an outing and everyone went home with a great sketch and painting. The visit from the grass parrots was a bonus.

2015 Summer Art Experience (SAE)
After almost a year of planning and carefully selecting tutors the 2015 SAE has now been launched with great excitement.
Twelve highly skilled and talented tutors will lead students through a week of further developing their skills. Students of all levels will be amazed at the artwork they produce during this week - it is an experience not to be missed.
2015 SAE will be held in the comfort of the Kingsford Smith School at Holt with shops nearby. ASOC has again partnered with Eckersley's to have a well stocked art store on site. The store often has great specials as well. Eckersley's are happy for you to contact them prior to SAE and have your materials ready for you when you arrive.
