The Visionary Projects is delighted to be hosting the "Dreaming Hyperrealism" four-day illustration workshop with Australian artist Georgina Kreutzer.

Day 1: Friday, May 24
Introduction

10am – Group Breakfast

Objectives – introduction; warm-up with new techniques; and acquire three key

Lessons: 1) The mixed media artist’s toolbox is powerfully versatile, 2) art is intuitive and much comes from your gut feeling, and 3) we are always allowed to break convention.

By way of an intro, we’ll get to know each other, and I will illuminate how our four days together will unfold

Every class is unique! To show I appreciate all levels of expertise (and that all levels are perfectly welcome!) I will sample some of my own past and current projects (stronger and less evolved work).

A Q&A session will follow, to highlight the elements of art making each artist would personally like to develop.

We’ll explore some key elements crucial to rendering realistically – specifically our approach to colour theory (and determining our own personal colour palette), rendering the illusion of light, and using different tools for layering various media

The fun part! The remainder of Day One will focus on quick rendering techniques in our sketchbooks. We will all work on the same images at this stage. The mode of the class will alternate between open demonstration, and one-on-one mentorship. Depending on the speed and flow of the class, we may delve into the beginning of Day Two (why not!)

5 PM – End of day one.

Day 2: Saturday, May 25
Commencing A Masterpiece

10am – Breakfast

Objectives – Creating/identifying a good reference image; mapping proportions; setting down first layers of colour.

We will have learned what makes a good reference photo – everyone will have the chance to prepare their own image, or follow along the one I will be using. Each individual artist’s style and unique reference image will determine a colour palette for the artwork. I will explain and show my own colour palette and assist each artist in selecting/developing their own. Your colour palette is NOT necessarily the colours literally within the image (this is important.)

We will choose our weapons (select tools and media), our toned paper, and prepare our surface for work. Depending on the individual artist and their working speed, some may wish to attempt two artworks in tandem – this is totally fine. It often works to our advantage to have a couple projects at any given point, to be able to alternate between each with fresh perspective.

5 PM – End of day two.

Day 3: Sunday, May 26
Layers & Details! (Wash, Rinse, Repeat)

10am – Breakfast

This is my favourite step in art-making. We’ll start with a demonstration of how I approach finer levels of detail, using acrylic and ink. The day will consist of layering media onto our surfaces, painting to music or audiobooks. This will reflect of how I work in my own studio each day. So long as it feels natural and necessary and won’t interrupt the flow of the class, I will alternate between further demonstration and providing guidance to each individual artist in rotation. This is an entirely therapeutic stage of art making, and if everyone manages to experience a confident flow at their own pace, it will be a successful day.

5 PM – end of day three.

Day 4: Monday, May 27
Final Details to Completion + Individual Feedback

10am – Breakfast

Today we will refine details, and ideally finish! The nature and flow of today’s class may echo Day Three. Instruction on how to best trim and mount our completed work to with gesso/matte-medium will be given. I will provide pointers on photographing our work for online marketing or archiving. Any incomplete / wet artwork can be mailed to you, so you may complete it at home!

4 PM - End of workshop!
