Australian artists Lucy and Barry McCann are sought after as painters and art teachers, so their workshop at Estuary Arts Centre in Orewa next month is exciting for the artistic community.
The McCanns are both fulltime professional artists who work largely on commission, as well as teaching and judging.
Participants at the three-day workshop, on November 10–12, will be shown the way that the couple use acrylic paint to create an “oil-like look” and the McCanns will also share tips to make painting in acrylics easier.
A step-by-step method of creating an artwork will be demonstrated.
Barry and Lucy have conducted numerous workshops in New Zealand, mainly in the medium of watercolour and oils. This will be the first time they have been on the Hibiscus Coast and also the first time they have shown their acrylic method.
