“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.”
An arts precinct is nothing without its artists. Supporting the Benedict House Open Day and precinct launch, artist Dennis Mortimer will be conducting free rolling workshops on portraiture in sculpture, acrylic and charcoal from the Artists Shed behind Benedict House. Artist Hilary McKay will also conduct studies of the precinct’s gardens and grounds in ink and wash.
Rolling classes are open to all and can visitors are invited to participate for however long they like.
