Lainie is a registered High School Art teacher and holds a Fine Arts degree, majoring in sculpture and has been teaching art for many years on the Gold Coast.
She mainly focuses on figurative work and portraiture, both in sculpture and oil painting, so if you need help with painting you are most welcome to bring it along.
As President of the Australian Creative Exchange she has organised many international art exchanges, both here and overseas.
Lainie will be in Florence in April doing a Sculpting and Portraiture workshop (as well as drinking wine and eating Italian food and checking out the art of course) and she hopes to bring back new techniques to demonstrate to her students.
Starting from January 11, 2017 Lainie will be teaching clay sculpting classes with 2 classes - the first in the morning from 9am till 12 noon and the second from 5.30pm till 8.30pm each Wednesday. Fees are $20 for 3 hours plus clay and firing costs. For non-members there will be an annual associate membership fee of $35 to cover insurance.
A life model will be included once a month in the Wednesday evening class, for members to either draw or Lainie will show you how to work with clay using a model.
If you need any help with painting then Lainie is also able to provide guidance with your work - simply bring it along with your materials to class.
