Birds are a constant companion to lots of us. Many have unique encounters or special relationships with them. It’s a rewarding experience to watch and listen to their beauty, behaviour and bird song as they fly about, foraging for food, nest building or calling for a mate.
The Wonderful World of Birds Workshop will teach you how to capture the awe-inspiring beauty and many expressive qualities of birds we are blessed to encounter in our daily lives. For two days the central theme throughout the workshop will be to help you understand and learn techniques to draw and paint avian qualities that intrigue and inspire you.
Learn in a fun, covid safe environment, easy to follow drawing approaches designed to strengthen your observation skills and develop individual expression. Demonstrations will guide students through a combination of mixed media techniques, planned to promote the creation of unique artworks about the bird’s participants admire and love.
Join in this enjoyable, exciting workshop if you want to learn how to draw birds or enhance your existing knowledge and talent.
Lessons and techniques cater for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.

I am very pleased to be a finalist in the 66th Blake Prize with my artwork – Trashed
I spend a lot of time walking and looking at birds along the Greenway corridor in the Inner West, Sydney.
Sometimes, I am fortunate enough to see an Australian Golden Whistler or Superb Fairy Wrens.
These two works are a response to urbanisation removing a lot of natural habitat for native plants and animals. Small birds like the Australain Golden Whistler and Superb Fairy Wren, are dependent on ground and shrub cover to provide shelter, food and a breeding ground. The Greenway is an important ecological corridor which helps protect the local population of birdlife. Without these green spaces, looking at images of birdlife might be all we have left.
