Masterclass with George Gittoes

George Gittoes

Join George Gittoes for a Chinese Brush Painting and ​watercolour adaptations with ​tribal stamps workshop.

George Gittoes will be teaching spontaneous brush painting learned under the Chinese Master Chen Chih Mai, who chose Gittoes, then a young student to participate in a special diplomatic exchange between Australia and Taiwan in the early 60's.

Gittoes has used these techniques his entire life and has expanded them into his own unique style incorporating Persian, Afghan and traditional European techniques that produce his famous and exquisite watercolours from his 'Beauty In The Face of Everything' period.

Cost is $120 and materials and a light lunch are included.
