Watercolour & Expressionism Intensive with Yinjaa-Barni & Cheeditha | Apr 2024


13 Artists Engaged

Facilitated by Andy Quilty & Sheree Dohnt

In April, artists from Yinjaa Barni Art and Cheeditha Art Group took part in a five-day watercolour and expressionism workshop led by artists Andy Quilty and Sheree Dohnt . Sheree’s gentle and deliberate style of brushwork beautifully complemented Andy’s loud and loose mark making, providing participants with a rich and dynamic learning experience.⁠

Throughout the week, artists immersed themselves in the medium of watercolours, exploring the intricacies of portraiture and landscape painting. Embracing imperfections became a mantra, with artists celebrating their mark-making rather than seeking perfection! ⁠

A highlight for all was the unforgettable on Country trip, where art-making seamlessly intertwined with storytelling. From beautiful portraits of loved ones, captivating self-reflections and evocative landscapes, each artist left with newfound skills and perspectives.

Our Country Moves aims to strengthen the network of art centres across WA with targeted support across management, governance, training and creating new employment opportunities through art centres and art making.
