with guest presenter Liana Vargas

“Everything you can imagine is real.”


Create your own portrait in the style of Pablo Picasso.

DATE:  Sunday 26 February 2017
TIME:  10 am – 4.00 pm
FEE: $180

A mirror or an enlarged photo or colour photocopy of yourself – or someone else if you cannot stand the idea of rendering yourself into a cubist masterpiece!
Plus, a sense of fun for your portrait.

Previous Splashout Workshops, presented by Liana, have focussed on Avant-garde artists such as; Vincent van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Paul Gauguin, Tamara de Lempicka, Mark Rothko, and Kasimir Malevich.  There will be more to come . . .



The workshop will begin with a short slideshow on some of Picasso’s most interesting cubist portraits.
A demonstration will be given on how to begin your portrait sketches (composition) and later, on how to begin with your transfer of your sketch to the canvas and how to begin the painting of it.

Elements from Picasso’s paintings can be incorporated into each participants painting, if they wish.
Liana will move around the studio assisting each participant throughout the workshop and at the end of the day all the paintings will be compiled for group feedback and photos.
