Art Class Description

Come with me, escape and travel across the world, immerse yourself and your senses in the magic, history and colours of Todi, a medieval town in Umbria. Create and discover with joyous energy and be inspired – Julianne Ross Allcorn

Julianne Ross Allcorn is an award winning Australian artist; a dual Finalist in 2021 Archibald and Wynne and in 2020 awarded ''The Trustees Watercolour Prize'' in the Wynne. Juli has her work in a number of well known art galleries and competitions - Maunsell Wickes, Michael Reid and Purple Noon. She is a teacher to many emerging artists and is inspired by the bush flora and fauna around the Burralong Valley, NSW .

Juli credits her childhood experiences in Rabaul, PNG and particularly the freedom she remembers growing up without television that nurtured her curiosity, her imagination and creative expression. Perfect for those who enjoy being extended and learning new techniques. This workshop is open to all levels of experience.

Julianne will focus on creating artworks in a mix of media - pencil, watercolour/ acrylic, pen and ink either on birch wood panels or paper. You will be encouraged to create and an art journal by capturing the surrounding landscape, flora and fauna and soaking in the history of Todi, while walking the surroundings and making works ‘en plein air’. Images captured outside will be taken into the studio to create larger more detailed artworks.

Each artist will be supported and encouraged to develop their style and interweave the different techniques of drawing, bringing to life the story and memories of their daily art journal. An art journal captures more than a series of photos. When you stop and immerse yourself in your surroundings all the senses are awakened. You begin to draw what you see (not what you think you see) and take notes. When revisiting your journal the memories are unforgettable, such a treasured trip comes to life anew.

At the end of the workshop students will be encouraged to exhibit one or more artworks either for sale, or not, in an exhibition of the work by the whole class. Local artists and supporters of Art Class Italy will attend the exhibition with a commission payable on any sales to the local gallery.
