I Can't Paint!
Starting Portraiture in Primary School 

with Daniel Butterworth


Vegemite, coffee and portraiture!?

This workshop is aimed at primary teachers looking for fun ways to approach painting and portraiture.

Facilitated by primary school art teacher and Archibald Prize Finalist Daniel Butterworth; Participants will learn how to engage students and interpret classic works from the Old Masters.

There will be a focus on observational skills and looking for tone, before advancing to use a limited palette and simple colour mixing. The workshop also focuses on application and mark making, whilst sparking student interest by using alternate materials such as coffee, mud, charcoal and Vegemite to create monochromatic preliminary studies and/or masterpieces!

So if you've ever heard a student utter the phrase "I Can't Paint…" – or worse, if you've ever been guilty of saying or thinking this yourself – Then this is definitely the workshop for you!


*Please note: This workshop involves the use of foodstuffs as painting mediums – coffee & vegemite will be used during this workshop. If you have allergies or sensitivities to these foods please consider carefully before booking.
