Monday, 11 March 2024 - 10:00 am to 01:00 pm

As part of our Collection 100 centenary celebrations during 2024, we’ve invited four artists represented in the MAG&M collection to each present a masterclass.

Join one or all four in this series of intensive workshops that will provide unique insights and access to the artists as they share their knowledge, skills and tips about approaches to the landscape, the figure and the still life.

Each artist will talk about their work, demonstrate key techniques and offer discussion and guided instruction on the essential techniques of drawing.

Leading the first masterclass is Amanda Penrose Hart with a session focused on seascapes. 

Please bring all your own materials and refreshments

Suggested materials:

  • gesso
  • acid free cartridge paper
  • assorted drawing implements / materials (pencils, charcoal, watercolours)

About Amanda Penrose Hart 

Brisbane-born artist Amanda Penrose Hart is predominantly a landscape painter. Travelling, and en plein air practice is intrinsic to Amanda’s work; she extrapolates the significance of a place through her work. Penrose Hart has featured in numerous selective group exhibitions, often following artist trips or artist-run projects.

Amanda won the Gallipoli Art Prize in 2017 and the Clayton Utz Award in 2019. She has also been a finalist in the Tattersalls Landscape Prize, Kings School Art Prize, the Salon de Refusés and NSW Parliament en Plein air, as well as the Portia Geach Memorial Award, the Kedumba Drawing Award, Muswellbrook Art Prize and the Kilgour Art Prize.
