Beginners Charcoal workshop
Local artist Mareli Janse van Rensburg will be hosting a series of half-day workshops at Jordan Wine Estate, sharing with us her knowledge, passion, and talents for a wide range of art mediums including charcoal and watercolour painting.
Mareli’s love for creating art is intrinsic to her being. Raised on a farm in the beautiful Baviaanskloof, she was fortunate to be surrounded by nature. Her love of plants and animals is clear in the beautiful depictions in her artwork.
She studied Fine Arts at Stellenbosch University and has many years of teaching experience, in Cape Town. She encourages her students to choose their own subject matter, which has challenged her to create new and interesting art works which are a delight to behold.
Charcoal is a beautiful expressive medium and a great start for anyone who is interested in starting to learn more about art. This is a forgiving medium to have fun in and it lays a great foundation for any other art mediums.
In the charcoal beginner’s course, you will cover the basic tools and materials used in charcoal and will include a brief background on how this form of art developed. You will explore the varying techniques used in charcoal drawing and get hands-on with the material as you create your very own artwork, under the careful instruction of Mareli.
