Made by Hand: Drawing in the Gallery Garden

Join accomplished artist Marvene Ash for a morning of en plein air drawings of subtropical plants and natives that surround the gallery. This is an explorative approach to drawing that is suitable for all stages from beginners onwards. 

Marvene Ash is an accomplished artist who works and exhibits from her studio gallery The Fourth Garage in Maleny. She has a long background in teaching however drawing remains her first love.

Marvene is a third time finalist in the LALC art prize and was a category winner in 2018. She has exhibited work in the Caloundra Regional Gallery, the Cooroy Butter Factory, Bundaberg Regional Gallery and the gallery in her hometown of Goondiwindi.
