Australian Silk Artist Teena Hughes Thrilled To Be Hosting Fabulous Silk Painting Retreat on Norfolk Island in October 2016
Australian silk artist Teena Hughes will be flying in to meet Students on Norfolk Island in the South Pacific for her first Norfolk week-long Silk Painting Retreat.
Students will learn to paint gorgeous colours on silk on this lush tropical island between 15th to 22nd October 2016.
Being invited to share her love of silk painting and unusal painting techniques with students flying to Norfolk Island in October this year really piqued the interest of Teena Hughes, so she has been busy creating clever surface design lessons with exciting and unusual agendas for each of the 5 days of painting En Plein Air (in the open). Excited to share these lessons with her Students on Norfolk, Teena recently shared this with her online followers, "I'm so excited at the prospect of combining a luscious tropical island paradise location with my Students, as they will be inspired so much by the lush colours of their surroundings and the strong vibrant silk dyes will enable them to create gorgeous, unique pieces of art on silk. A perfect tropical arty getaway!"
Norfolk Island is steeped with rich Australian history, and will be a superb location to get the creative juices flowing for the Students in this exclusive Workshop. As well as five half-days of learning how to paint on silk, Teena and the Students will be exploring this gorgeous island in the South Pacific and getting to know the locals, while visiting the local tourist attractions and trying out the restaurants and other adventures Norfolk has to offer.
Natalie Blaik, a student who attended one of Teena's Silk Painting Workshops, posted this Review: "I have never been able to draw anything and was never particularly creative at art. But Teena's silk painting workshop makes it easy to make beautiful creations without having any previous artistic talent at all. The feeling of brushing vibrant colours onto the silk was fabulous and so relaxing!"
If you've ever wondered about silk painting, but thought you didn't have any artistic skills, Teena says, "If you can hold a pencil, you can hold a paintbrush! No artistic skills are required, just a love of life and a sense of humour, plus a dash of adventure to give it a go. I guarantee you'll have fun and learn how to make beautiful things!"
Another silk painting Student, Fiona in Australia says, "Teena, You make it look so easy, I am in awe! I am looking forward to practicing heaps and learning as I go. I loved the Course, I plan to keep going and keep practicing, I want to get better. I love your method of teaching, you are very clear and teach from the basics which is exactly what I needed."
Teena Hughes knows what it's like to be a "beginner" so this Silk Painting Workshop on Norfolk Island takes the student by the hand and explains everything - with step-by-step in-person lessons suitable for everyone including beginners. Also included are tons of Teena's tips, tricks and techniques learned the hard way over the past 30 years.
One of Teena's Students, Dru, shared her excitement of her silk painting day by providing a video testimonial (link below).
