Australian based Artists and Mastrius Master Mentors Ann Rayment and Annette Raff have vast teaching experience in person and online, offering a wide breadth of technical expertise in various art media.

Both are dedicated to helping students discover and hone their individual styles through experimentation and practice. 

DON’T MISS this event as Ann and Annette share how to run engaging workshops that will help students gain confidence, stay open minded and discover their unique artistic voices. They will be answering questions such as:

  • What are some factors to consider when planning an art class or workshop to ensure its success? Are they the same for classes online or in person?
  • How do you determine the target audience for your art classes or workshops, and how does it influence your planning process?
  • What are effective strategies for promoting and marketing art classes and workshops to attract participants?
  • How do you strike a balance between providing structure and allowing for creative freedom in your art classes or workshops? 
  • What are some key challenges for new teachers to consider when hosting art classes or workshops?

As always, bring your curiosity, your paint brushes, and your questions!

Meet Ann Rayment

Acrylic | Oil | Conte | Charcoal | Graphite

The Australian landscape is Ann’s inspiration.

She loves colour and texture and challenges herself to find new ways to include this in her work. Ann loves the looseness and unpredictability of marks and experimenting with collage and colour in layers.

She explores the subject through making direct responses with mediums such as ink, pastel charcoal, and acrylic paint. Her brush strokes are bold and energetic, capturing the rawness of the Australian Landscape. She believes everyone can paint.

“It’s all about having the right mindset. Have fun with the process and don’t have high expectations of the product. I liken my process to dancing with the paintbrush. When you’re in the zone the brush takes the lead.”

Meet Annette Raff

Watercolor | Graphite | Mixed Media | Drawing

I love the feeling of exhilaration when trying something new and the journey each artwork takes as I respond intuitively to the often spontaneous, happenings on the surface.

And while I have always been captivated by the creative process, intellectual challenge, and spontaneity of watercolour, my interest in an array of mediums, application processes and surfaces is growing. My recent work continues to evolve and most recently reflects a fusion of both recognisable and abstract imagery. I enjoy a variety of mixed media including collage, monotype, drawing and painting, sometimes within the same painting

While my teaching usually focuses on traditional drawing and painting as important foundational skills for beginner artists, I strongly encourage my more experienced students to develop their unique interpretation and style. Fear can be the greatest obstacle to artistic growth and often trying something outside of our comfort zone can result in wonderful discoveries.
