Melissa Read Divine will conduct a one day Acrylics workshop on the 5th March 2016
- One Day WorkshopMellissa has been working as a professional artist since moving to Sydney in 1999. She is recipient of awards and a finalist in many prestigious shows and is a successful exhibitor in galleries and shows around Australia and overseas. A painter of lively impressionistic works in a signature style, Mellissa is an enthusiastic tutor who is passionate about inspiring creativity and excellence in her students.
Mellissa is keen to help you be able to find your own style and will encourage you to paint bolder, and brighter. The local landscape in acrylic will be demonstrated, but students are welcome to bring their own pieces or photographs that that personally inspire.
