Migration workshop

September 10, 2017

On Sunday 3 September at Mission Arts visiting Brisbane artist, Carlos de Evian, and local artist Sue Pullman, conducted a workshop, How to Improve Your Artwork From Multiple Images. The workshop aimed to extend the skills of beginner and intermediate level artists. Sue and Carlos provided handy tips, technical demonstrations, and personal critique to broaden student knowledge and confidence. Pre-planning and construction of subject matter helped students develop their own visual language.

"It has been an honour for me to be part of this workshop and I hope to contribute to the Mission Beach art community and participate in future exhibitions." Carlos De Evian said. "It is a wonderful opportunity to teach and help students, and to learn more from them."

Carlos studied drawing and painting in the International School of Arts, El Salvador. He obtained advanced skills in portraiture, sketching, watercolour and ink. In 1992-93, he studied Graphic Design at the University of El Salvador, with focus on the masters such as Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonard Da Vinci, El Greco and the Renaissance.

"We invited Carlos to exhibit in the recent Migration Exhibition and to facilitate this workshop due to his high standard of teaching skills and knowledge. He not only works professionally, but is able to teach in all art mediums" stated Lynda Hannah, President of Mission Arts. " The workshop was a great success and students expanded their creative talents by drawing on multiple images in one artwork."

This workshop was funded by a CCRC RADF grant.
