In conjunction with Charles Blackman: Schoolgirls, Heide presents a series of painting and drawing workshops focusing on the techniques and ideas used by Blackman to create his famous Schoolgirl series. Aimed at introducing participants to traditional and innovative approaches to painting and drawing, these workshops are suitable for all skill levels. In each session participants will view and discuss selected works within the exhibition prior to commencing their artworks in Heide’s beautifully situated Education Centre. All materials are provided.

Blackman's Schoolgirl series was inspired by a true event that was to become a lasting metaphor for the artist. Learn how to create stories in paint composing figures, symbols and motifs with colour in this oil-painting workshop. Suitable for all skill levels.
