Welcome to our new look Newsletter
With the arrival of the wet weather Karen Frankel Art Studio has become a place for people to come in and be creative in a warm place out of the cold.
Take a creative chance
The Studio is an encouraging, safe, learning environment where like-minded people come together to experience and find their creative potential. When you come to one of the Studio workshops all materials are supplied so that you can try before you need to worry about buying them. This way you learn what materials are the most appropriate for you and you don’t face an enormous shop full of things you don’t know about.
When we say that workshops or classes are suitable for beginners we really mean that. Even in our on-going classes we take time out to work with individuals at their level.
I'm pleased to offer places in our term 3 Drawing Course. You will be surprised at what you produce as you discover that drawing is more about how you look at things. I love it when my students come back to class exclaiming that they now see the world differently. Come and find out what they mean.
I have a Life Drawing workshop coming up on Sunday 25th September for people with some drawing experience. Life drawing means drawing a nude model. At first thought this sounds daunting but after a few minutes we all settle down into the observation and sketching. It's a wonderful experience. During the first half of the day we will work on figure drawing exercises and what traps to avoid. After lunch we will work from a model. Please contact me to find out more and book in.
I am excited about the new Studio website which went live last month. New features include So you think you can’t draw and In the Studio Blogs. I hope to update them reasonably often and would love to get your comments to nudge me along. You can share the articles on facebook too.
The Sunday workshop page has been updated with new Introduction to Acrylics workshop at the end of July and details of the beautiful Nuno-felt scarves we will make in the Felting workshop. In addition you can now book and pay for these online. Credit card and eftpos facilities will also be introduced in the near future for your convenience.
Full enrolment forms are also now available on the site. Many of our classes are full with waiting lists so your enrolment enquiries will be speedily followed up to give you more information.
There are always inspiring exhibitions happening all over Perth. If you would like up-to-the-minute information on exhibitions, events and more then please ‘like’ the Karen Frankel Art Studio facebook page. As I come across new events I post them on my facebook page so come and join me.
The Old Royal George Artists Foundation have great pleasure in inviting you to their joint exhibition in the beautiful Moores building in Fremantle. The exhibition opens on Friday 22nd July and will continue until August 7th.

The inaugural WA Visual Art Expo is being hosted at UWA on Sunday 10th July. This is an exciting event that is part of the Perth Winter Arts Season with great activities including kids art workshops and face painting. Enjoy watching Perth’s top artists demonstrating their amazing skills, some working from live models, all held in and around the picturesque Winthrop and Hackett Hall at UWA.
Out There An exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Robertson Park Artists Studio members: Carol Rowling, Fran Dennis, Graham Hay, Lauren Wilhelm, Sarah Marchent, at Riseborough Estate Winery and Gallery.
La Salle College The 26th Annual Art Exhibition will be held once again in conjunction with the Spring in the Valley festivities. The Official Opening will be held on Friday 14 October from 7pm to 10pm. The exhibition is open for the rest of the weekend. I will be exhibiting some pieces in this exhibition.
Rose Skinner has been with the Studio for a year and has been taking the Kids’ Art and Teen Art classes. At the end of this term she is heading to the UK to further her fantastic art career on a Uni exchange program. The children have learned skills outside of their usual comfort zone and produced marvellous work under her guidance. We will really miss Rose’s bright and enthusiastic energy in the studio and I wish her all the best. I have no doubt that she will soon make a name for herself overseas.
Debbie Powdrill has been teaching our little artists who have taken home pieces varying from carved faces to beautiful roses. I am delighted that Debbie will be continuing with the Little Art classes and will also be taking the Kids’ Art and Teen Art classes from next term.
You are welcome to visit the studio to have a look. Simply contact me to make a time and I will be delighted to show you around. I look forward to seeing you in the Studio, on my blog and facebook pages. Please feel free to forward this email to your friends and family.
