OIL PASTELS with Vicki Bullard

Vicki Bullard




Pastel is a unique dry medium, very versatile and direct, and it eliminates the need to mix colours on a palette.

The pastel class is on Thursday mornings, 9.30 to 12.30, and a fee of $15 per person applies, paid daily.

New students wanting to investigate the pastel medium, are welcome to try mine, before going to the expense of purchasing their own.

At the moment, there is a vacancy for 2/3 people

If you are interested in trying your hand at pastels, call Vicki.

PRINT MAKING with Chris Rigley

Chris Rigley
Beginners and experienced participants welcome!


Students will explore the many possibilities of the collagraph print, a very affordable printmaking technique that can produce interesting and often unexpected results. Students will create a collagraph plate using mat board, looking specifically at incising and peeling away layers of the plate, and applying textures, paint mediums and glue onto the plate surface. As the course progresses other printmaking techniques will be explored, including drypoint, silkscreen on substrate, monoprint and others.

Students can bring in images and ideas to work with, or work on ideas during session times.

Class size is limited to a max of 6 due to physical limitations.


Room hire: members $5

               non members $10

Materials:   $5 per session

Life Drawing
Art Care Plus


Starting off painting thirty five years ago in the western Riverina district of NSW, I basically had to teach myself in my early years. I was encouraged by the ready market in river and bush scenes for transferring teachers, police and bank officers. Since moving to Old Bar then Forster I have had more opportunity to seek guidance from some of our better known artists; June Young, Barbara Farnham, Lyn Butchart, Ronald Revitt, Robert Wade and more recently Herman Pekel, Grace Pelag, John Wilson, Madeleine Szymanski, Chan Dissanayake and Barry & Lucy McCann.

Watercolourist and Watercolour Tutor 

My lifetime fascination for water is reflected in my preferred medium. If I'm not painting I'd settle for surfing, surfboat rowing, scuba diving, Kayaking or even patrolling the beach. I admire the watercolours of Hans Heysen, Alvaro Castagnet, Herman Pekel, Joseph Abukvic and Ross Paterson, and was lucky enough to attend the Mitchell School of Creative Arts summer 2004, where I met up withthe latter four over tennis and beers. Unfortunately Hans couldn't make it. I have painted mostly seascapes and landscapes of late and I only use artist quality paints and prefer Arches and Saunders internally sized , 100% rag papers, 300g and 640g. My paintings have spread far and wide around the globe, I only wish I could go and visit them occasionally. Still life, oils, acrylics, mixed media and portraiture all await me now that I've extricated myself from my real job. I have to admit I am leaning more towards atmosphere and narratives as I grow as an artist. 'Tis the journey.



Life Drawing is a group that meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month for 2 hours between 2pm and 4pm.

The group is organised by Pam Dunne. The group pools funds to pay for the model collectively.

There is no formal tutor.

A message from Pam:-

This is not a lesson. It is come and draw.
Drawing live models is the best way to improve your drawing skills.

There is a variety of abilities within the group. Some members have had life drawing lessons and others none.

I try to get a variety of different models both male and female.


We start with warm up poses of about 30 seconds. For these you are only able to quickly scrawl a gesture. This is just a warmup and to get the feel of the model. We move on to 5 minute and 10-minute poses.

I try to organize Life Drawing lessons, with a tutor, a couple of times a year.


For those who have never done Life Drawing before but are interested in coming along, I suggest you look at some of the online lessons. There are a variety to be found on you tube.

Hand Drawing

OIL painting class

Judy's Art Group
Scattered Paintbrushes

9:30 -12:30pm
1:00 - 4:00pm

For more details:

Your tutor has been teaching oil painting at Lake Street Gallery for the past 4 years and teaches 2 classes on Tuesdays. The morning class runs from 9:30am-12:30pm. The afternoon class runs from 1-4pm. Classes are $10 each and students only pay when they attend.

     Your tutor organises, helps and motivates students, creating a relaxed and safe space where students can develop their skills and talents. Both classes provide for both beginners and more experienced students. We do guided, step-by-step paintings and free choice paintings.    

Each 3 hour class includes around 30 minutes of our tutor talking about upcoming art related events, anything new we have discovered in the last week and a small art theory segment. The rest of the time is allocated to students painting their art works.        We have our own dedicated Facebook Art Group where students can add photos of their paintings, reference images, and generally keep in touch. I encourage my students to pop onto Youtube for oil painting ideas and tutorials.     Students in the class organize social functions for us all. These include regular luncheons, and before C19, day and overnight art trips.     Oil painting is such a wonderful tried and tested medium to have fun with. You will love working with the creamy texture of the oil paints and appreciated how slowly the oil paint takes to dry on the palette.     Please  contact for further details.

Open Studio Mondays


OPEN STUDIO Mondays (1:00 - 4:00pm) is intended for artists using water based or drawing type mediums (or any medium that does not create fumes) who wish to meet up, share ideas and work on their individual projects. 

There is no tutor provided during this session and is completely self directed.

Fees are $5 for GLAS members and $10 for non-members and are payable on the days attended. The daily fee helps to cover running costs for room and facilities hire.
