Description

As one of the earlier female artists to emerge on the street art scene in Australia, Deb’s bold and unmissable works dominate the streets of Melbourne and cities all over the world.

Known for her colourful & curvaceous pin-up style babes and depictions of Hindu gods and goddesses, Deb has a style all of her own that continues to evolve and grow – whether it be adorning walls, trucks, t-shirts or gallery walls.

In this 5 hour workshop, you’ll learn everything from street etiquette to how to control a spray can. Deb will share the experiences of her creative career – from being an emerging aerosol artist on the Melbourne art scene – to an internationally recognised artist now living in San Francisco and working all across the globe. 

Starting off with a sketching session where you will begin planning what you want to paint on the day (bring some sketches from home or some reference images to work from) Deb will be able to give you plenty of feedback and advice on planning your piece.

Deb will talk colour selection and help you choose an eye-catching colour palette and give you a rundown on some different types of paints that are on the market and how to choose the right kind for the job. 

 You’ll have plenty of wall space to practice your technique and develop your skills – with Deb providing 1-on-1 guidance to help you gain confidence and get your can control down!

Back in Melbourne for a brief time only, this is an amazing opportunity to learn from one of Australia’s most well-established and successful contemporary artists. Tickets are limited so don’t sleep on this one!
