THE Upper South Coast Art Association (USCAA­) enjoyed a fantastic month of art.
During a private member workshop, Jeanette Gilks offered a full-day workshop on drawing heads – working “blind” and multi-pencil drawings, stating the importance of daily drawings.

The aim of her workshop was to explore alternative approaches to drawing, which promote confidence and thereby liberate unforeseen visual and pictorial potential.
Grant Wood offered a watercolour demonstration on Saturday afternoon.

“Grant is from the South Coast and created a seascape in watercolour while explaining his technique and style of painting. Several visitors attended and new members joined our association. We had fantastic attendance,” said USCAA chairperson, Patricia McCann.

Competition results:
Drawing group offered by Sheila Fraser and Sylvia Holtzhausen on creating “water drops” – Section C - Delyse Ramos, painting nudes in greyscale - Section A - Sheila Fraser, Section B - Loradana Rossetto. Drawing nudes in greyscale (home drawing – Section D) – Sheila Fraser. The WhatsApp Lucky Draw Competition winners were Joyce Moodley, who won a watercolour painting done by artist Beulah van Rooyen and Ann Baker, who won the watercolour painted by Ann Waterson.

The mystery competition was judged by five judges on composition, technique, tonal contrast, colour use, answering the brief and the wow-factor. There were 18 entries - first was Sheila Fraser with Young Ethelred, second Fiona Anderson with The Walrus and the Carpenter, third GerryAnn Coetzer with Chickens, fourth Ann Waterson with Cairo Belly Dancers and fifth was Sylvia Holtzhausen with Elephants playing.
Each won a canvas and were selected to paint in round two of the artist competition at Seadoone Mall.

“We have enjoyed plenty of visitors joining us at our meetings and hope they will attend again on 18 June,” McCann said.
