The Art of Drawing Workshop
About Artist and Tutor Jose:
Jose Gutierrez is fluent in many mediums including oils, watercolours, acrylic, gouache and pastels.
Jose also practices photography. Technology and computers are part of his interests with digital art adding an extra dimension and form of expression to his work. Jose believes ‘the subject matter’ will always determine the choice of medium. Jose does not have a singular genre of preference in his work which may include landscapes, seascapes, portraiture, abstracts, people or just anything that may excite his senses.
This 1 day workshop will teach students the principals of portraiture drawing and encourage students to work at their own creative level and produce individual works from photos or still life set up.
Pencil, graphite, charcoal, conte, pen & ink. Composition, technique, substratum and more.

About Dana Sypniewski
As a child Dana showed great interest in drawing, so beautifully illustrating her books and school projects that teachers often kept them. With a passion for colour and interior decorating, Dana went on to study at the Julian Ashton School of Arts followed by sculpture and colour and design at East Sydney Technical College. Dana was later inspired by art tutor colleagues, whilst employed at Macquarie University.
Dana has taken classes and workshops with local art societies, conducted by high profile artists including Drummoyne Art Society’s John Perkins, whom she finds inspiring. She has attended ‘Art in Action’ for over 20 years and painted in Tuscany with artist Ron Muller of Melbourne. Her paintings can be found in England, Italy and Poland in high profile establishments.
Dana’s Australian landscape work captures a translucent quality with her use of colour, light and harmony, achieved by loading the brush with very thick paint and little medium. Composition is also very important. Dana draws and paints in oils, acrylics and watercolour, and her subject matter is diversified including both modern and traditional. Dana has won many art awards and first prizes including the Bankstown and Drummoyne Art Societies, the Combined Art Society and Rotary Exhibitions.
At Drummoyne’s Open Awards 2011, Dana won the Member’s Section with Country Magic. The Judge said of this work “This painting captures everything about the subject – taking the viewer on a relaxed journey. It has a pleasing simplicity and interesting surface texture. Dana’s winning painting has also appeared in the Australian Artist Magazine on two occasions”.
