Live Art Workshops: Coffee Table Journaling

Workshop Image

Journaling can be a diary for recording a holiday with photos or words, starting with mark making or creating colour swatches in different media. Choosing the best sketchbooks from the many options available is a big task, and your choice can have a real impact on your work. A sketchbook with heavier, thicker paper is more suitable for artists using watercolours and markers, whereas lighter paper works better for dry media. Explore fantastic, beautiful and whimsical references for creating an artwork. Your journal will become an interesting coffee table item you can share with others about the artists process…record your travel experiences and fill your journal full of notes, sketches, and small paintings to possibly turn into larger artworks. Or just keep them as keepsakes from a great road trip……. the possibilities are endless!

Workshop Artist: Lizzie Connor

I am a professional artist and tutor with approximately 30 years’ experience as both. Originally from Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, I have lived in many places around Australia and I now live at Mudjimba Beach, on the Sunshine Coast. I have won many awards in South East Queensland, and to date have held approximately 24 solo exhibitions and a number of joint exhibitions.

My art tutoring has taken me to many places including the Greek Islands, Norfolk Island and a regular annual week of drawing and painting in Fiji, as well as working and completing residencies interstate. My works are created from the natural world and particularly the ocean and beach environment where I have spent all my life, and I have spent many years creating methods that now have become instinct. Different trends come and go, and I hope my work will stand the test of time and remain as relevant to its source as the day it was created and I hope the work evokes some wonderful emotions for the people viewing it.
