About the Workshop:

A workshop studying the methods and techniques used by Austrian Art Nouveau artist Gustav Klimt. One of the best ways of doing this is to actually duplicate one of his paintings.

Please choose your preferred Klimt painting and email your preference to me so I can print a good quality colour A4 reference photocopy for you.

No drawing skills needed if you choose to have your canvas pre drawn for you ($50 extra) so you can then concentrate on the Klimt's delicate painting style and the applying of gold-leaf.

What you will need on the day;

  • If you are a beginner the girls at Duthy Street Art Supplies can set you up with a beginners painting kit.
