EXPRESS YOURSELF – YOUTH ART CLASSES 2015 

(with Dawn Whitten)

Slide1Slide2

Our aim for these classes is to foster creative thinking and build self-confidence, and allow children a safe space to learn, experiment and create. Your child will learn all aspects of fine art including theory, history and techniques while having lots of fun finding their own unique style.

LANDSCAPE TERM:
The first Term of 2015 will focus on landscapes. We will look at the impressionists, the romantics and contemporary artists, realistic and abstract landscapes.T he art space has a beautiful back garden and we will make full use of it. We will learn to see the beauty that is in the natural world around us. They will learn the techniques and the theory and then they will come up with their own unique  creation at the end of the term, my using the tools and concepts they have learned, but interpreting that in a way that is unique and personal to them.

THIS YEAR WE WILL WORK TOWARDS ENTERING SHOWS AND HOSTING A SPECIAL END OF YEAR EXHIBITION AT THE ART SPACE.

As always, we hope this email finds you wonderful, well, and enjoying the possibility the New Year will bring. 

We have so many exciting things happening at the ARTspace this year – INCLUDING turning 5!!! The ARTspace was such a huge leap of faith, I’ve told you before that I was manifesting the old adage, “Leap and the net shall appear..” and by goodness we let alright! It’s been an incredible journey, and seen many of us through some of the darkest and brightest days. It’s as much of an honour now as it was then. The space, had really gone from strength to strength, and the friendships and memories are a’plenty! 

Do you think it’s cause for a party? I’m thinking so…more soon xxx

  • Loobylou – Finders Keepers Fri 6th – Saturday 7th June
We are beyond thrilled that Loobylou candles have been invited back to Finders Keepers in June. It’s truly an honour to showcase something we’ve worked so very hard on and believe in so much, in such an exciting and dynamic forum. We’re surrounded by such talent and workmanship with Finders Keepers and can’t wait! I plan to get ahead of Christmas shopping (for a change) this year, and what a one stop shop that will be!
Also, we have a new retailer. Lakota Trading at 12 Lenthall Street, Kensignton. Lakota carries our entire 250ml range of candles amongst vintage wares, industrial antiques and the kicker – GREAT coffee.
  • Kid’s Art Classes / Lessons
I’m putting together a few classes for the next school holidays between myself and hopefully a couple of other locals creatives. If you’re interested let me know ASAP for first dibs on spaces. We run small classes so that your little folks can get as much out of them, and have heaps of time for exploration and experimentation as they can get.
Further to this, one of our wonderful ARTspace crew, Dawn is putting together a course for regular Art classes starting soon for after school. As above, let us know if you’re interested so you can get the information first.
We try to cater to the needs of the community as best we can and the whole aim of the ARTspace is to be an accessible, affordable safe creative space. If YOU have any ideas of courses/classes/Exhibitions you think we should be running, please let us know! Feedback is how we’ll grow.
Colourful days to you.

2014 ART classes for Adults and Teens FINALLY!!!

Hey Gang,


Following a heap of emails through the year about this very subject, I am super excited to be sending this email announcing the beginning of ‘a new era’  at the underground ARTspace – the return to classes. This email announces the beginning of some pretty exciting Art classes being run by Lisa Woolfe and Rachel Carrol (two well known and incredibly talented Artists) located in the underground ARTspace! Rachel will be doing Abstract & Mixed Media Painting (adults) and also Art Classes for Teens 12-17 years. While Lisa will be teaching Learn to Draw (adults). On top of this, plans are already underway for a Life Drawing Studio. Please find attached a flyer about the classes, or check out their website: http://artclassesnorthernbeaches.com.au
 
It’s been a big mission of mine to have the ARTspace as a stand alone creative space for Artists – and creatives of ANY medium to come down, and find their inner Artist is safe and fabulous surrounds. Art classes – and creating were the very core of my intention for the space but due to me being still a little unstable, and attempting to find balance – it’s something I’ve never been able to fully commit to. And a commitment it is. Art teachers (and all teachers) share something so personal and passionate and in doing so, help you to connect to your own gifts be they entire dormant thus far, or just a little dusty. That being said, the ARTspace is so special to me, and all the Studio Artists that reside within it, I wasn’t going to just hand it over to anyone was I?
 
So….ta dah. A new chapter begins. I am so excited to be sending you this email introducing this. I hope a lot of folks on my list have the opportunity to secure a space within Rachel and Lisa’s classes. This is just one avenue this will be promoted via so GET IN QUICK!!! I hope to see you around my neck of the woods again soon.

Happy 2014 x

Gabby Malpas – Prints on Canvas

Image

“Poppies” by Gabby Malpas

As you know, Adrian and I have had the pleasure of working with some pretty incredibly Artists since we made the big foray in to both retail and Gallery life. Among them, we discovered Gabby Malpas who first showed with the underground ARTspace in 2010, and has remained a loyal Artist and firm friend ever since.

Gabby’s unique style isas breathtaking as the quality of her work, her presentations – and her rich vibrant colours are as huge as her personality.

Gabby has a fantastic website which you should certainly check out, and has recently (after a long long time researching, sampling and working to get the right supplier both in ethics and quality) released her line of Cotton Canvas Prints. Not only are they fabulous – the price is simply extraordinary. You can’t afford to miss this!

The image attached is the one we will be purchasing for our daughter Lanya’s Christmas or Birthday. We have long since made it a point to buy Lanya things of substance as opposed to plastic bits and bobs that ultimately end up in landfill.  Let’s face it, to my (very biased) mind Art heads that category…We are blessed to have a child that agrees, and appreciates Art as we do.

The following is taken from Gabby’s website:

At present I am offering three sizes:

A2 – 40cm x 60cm = $100.00AU
A1 – 60cm x 84cm = $200AU
A0 – 84cm x 119cm = $300.00AU

Each print is produced in waterproof oil-based inks on cotton canvas stretched over a wooden frame.  I have chosen the materials for their natural feel (cotton, rather than nylon), and for their durability.  Please keep artworks out of direct sunlight so ensure the colours stay bright for many years.

Below is a small selection of works I have available as prints on canvas.  Nearly every work I have produced can be printed – if you see something you like, please get in touch.

Please also be aware that as this item is produced overseas there will be a lead time of a few weeks if I do not have one already in stock.
