Reminder: MTAS Monthly Meeting and Zoom Demo with Dario Falzon! Today! 9th November

REMINDER: MTAS Monthly Meeting: Demo via Zoom
Tuesday, 9th November 7.30pm
Oil Painting with Dario Falzon

This is a reminder that this evening we will welcome Dario Falzon back Painting in Oils for our Monthly Meeting and Demonstration this Tuesday, 9th November, 7:30pm. Unfortunately due to the Stan Stevens Studio not being open as yet and current Musson Lane number restrictions, we will be having this demonstration via Zoom. It’s not too late to register to join!

Please register your attendance by emailing info@mtas.com.au

The Zoom link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88286777754

As a child Dario was always drawing and if he didn’t have pen and paper in hand it was an odd occurrence. This continued through much of his youth along with a strong interest in music and hip hop in particular.

In his late twenties he enrolled in a community college course studying the basics of art. Shortly thereafter he found the Julian Ashton Art School. It was around this point in time that he began to fully appreciate an interest in landscape painting and began to seek out specific artists and workshops that could develop his skills.

A connection to nature is something that is important and part of his heritage. Art is a way to express this and share with others his appreciation.

You can see more of Dario’s brilliant works here:

Both members and non members are welcome to join us for our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

Reminder: MTAS Demo Meeting — 10th August 2021: Joe Cartwright and Watercolours

Reminder: MTAS Monthly Demonstration Meeting
Tuesday 10th Aug 2021 7.30pm
Joe Cartwright ‘Waterscape’ in Watercolours

This is a reminder for Joe Cartwright’s Demo, please register your attendance.

We are very lucky to have one of our brilliant members Joe Cartwright as our next demonstrating artist on Tuesday 10th August.

With the uncertainty of lock down and safety in NSW we have decided to deliver the coming meeting via Zoom only for August and hope that face to face can return for our September Meeting.

Since the start of the pandemic Joe has revolutionised how he teaches his classes using only Zoom now as his delivery method. He has honed his skills to be able to deliver to students not only in Australia, but all over the world, on a regular weekly basis. (For more info about Joe’s classes on his website you can click here)

Joe has very kindly agreed to give us the demo directly from his studio with his excellent setup via Zoom and we are excited to see this in action.

The demonstration will be at the same time as our Monthly Meeting would usually be – 10th of August at 7.30pm and go until approximately 9pm. We will have the usual few announcements at the start from Committee, Joe will demonstrate and people can also ask questions during and at the end of the demo.

Joe is exceptionally skilled in Watercolours and will be doing a ‘Waterscape’ for us on the night.

MTAS has decided to give this demonstration to members and their guests without the usual door entry fee of $5, so we need you to please register your attendance well in advance to be sent the link to your email to be able to attend and be admitted to the Zoom session.

You MUST register to attend by emailing info@mtas.com.au

Please try to register by the end of August 8th so that we have time to send you out your link and we know who will be attending.

If you need assistance setting up Zoom on your computer or your mobile device you can also ask Satya on 0405 337 652.

For inquiries about this demonstration phone Annmaree 0429 234 873
Look forward to seeing you there!
