Event Details

3-day Workshop by Holly McWilliams

  • Mon. July 3, 10am-4pm
  • Tue. July 4, 6-9pm
  • Wed. July 5, 6-9pm


Essential workshop for artists tired of mixing huge vats of the wrong colour and spending most of your time mixing sludge on the palette instead of putting fresh colour on to the canvas.

Applied colour mixing to the rescue! Armed with a palette knife and tubes of paint, you will learn the defences passed down from ancient, battling, masters of art. Start painting from the offence, not the trenches filled with mud.

There is a method to the madness of colour mixing, join Holly for this 12 hour workshop that will break down the double primary system, warm and cool colours, complementary colours and transitions.

Open to oil, acrylic and watercolour artists.

Holly attended ACAD majoring in sculpture and painting. She has been instructing at Swinton’s since 2000 with a focus towards providing an enjoyable, positive and inventive learning environment. Holly concentrates on painting inspired by tradition. Full Instructor Bio: HERE
