WORKSHOP: Artist John Lacey ran a two-day workshop for the Port Lincoln Art Group last month.

Every year the Port Lincoln Art Group seeks to have at least two workshops.

This year the group was excited to host a two-day workshop with South Australian artist John Lacey on May 8 and 9.

John Lacey is a well known professional artist working on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

His last exhibition was held in January in Port Elliott and featured beautiful expressive landscapes.

The 20 art group members worked hard over the two days learning and practising oil painting techniques through landscape paintings.

Mr Lacey presented information using a variety of instruction methods including painting demonstrations with ample opportunity for members to practice the techniques.

It was a challenging but extremely worthwhile two days.

The Port Lincoln Art Group meets every Wednesday at ArtEyrea between 10am and 3pm.

It is a diverse and welcoming bunch and members invite any interested people to go and have a look.
