ABOUT SYDNEY
ART
GROUP
Come along to our meetups to improve your art in a relaxed and social atmosphere, and under the guidance of a professional instructor. Complete beginners to experienced artists all welcome.

Our 2 hour meetups are held in a different location each time, usually outdoors.

Bring your own materials which can be anything from pencils or pastels, to watercolour or oils.

If you are a complete beginner all you need to start are a couple of good drawing pencils, a rubber, and a drawing pad.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to experienced artists. The instructor is there to help everyone.

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Sydney Facebook Group here to share your art and enjoy the art of other locals.

Our meetups and classes are limited to a max of 12 people

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

It was really challenging - Alice is a wonderful instructor. She explained concepts of composition and then guided us through as we observed and prepared our interpretations.

INSTRUCTORS
Marianne Cara
Marianne Cara is a painter and print artist living and working in Sydney, she attended the National Art School achieving Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2004, and also teaches Visual Arts. Her Italian background has had a strong influence on her painting as she paints landscapes that delicately blend Calabrian village scenes with backyard Australiana drawing together different aspects of both heritages, inspired by stories past and present. Her love of painting landscapes culminated with a 3 week residency in Umbria, Italy in 2019, where she developed a series of plein air landscape paintings and drawings.
Alice Xu
Alice Xu is an artist working in the drawing and painting medium. She often focuses on themes of life and figurative works. Alice likes to treat her artworks almost like a photo diary, keeping scenes of the everyday and documenting the mundane, instances of people captured like a moment in time. Alice has been in notable shows such as KAAF Art Prize (KCC Exhibition) Mosman Youth Art Prize (Mosman Art Gallery) (Audi Mosman Centre) and Noel Chettle Memorial Art Prize (Newcastle TAFE).
