Jennifer Collins is an emerging local artist with a degree in Visual Arts, majoring in print making. During the seven-week term, we will be tutored in an exciting and interesting way of making art through monotype (monoprinting). Monoprinting is a process-driven activity where a single print is taken from a design created in printing ink on glass or plastic. A second print, called a ghost print, can also be pulled, which can be useful for layering or as backgrounds to other prints. Over the term, we will use multiple established techniques including, but not restricted to, trace monoprint, additive and subtractive methods and cut-outs. There will be options also to learn simple folding techniques to create artist books and delightful art objects from our prints.

I always find that the results gained from printmaking are stimulating and rewarding, often with pleasant surprises for the maker. Jennifer Collins

Regular Tutors for BAS

Rene Bolton

Painting and drawing is an integral part of the rhythm and structure of daily life for classically trained artist Rene Bolten.

Bolten’s drawing practice is an exploration of mark making rather than subject; he says “I know how to make them, but don’t know what they are”.

After producing up to 100 drawings a day the artist puts the work aside until he has enough distance to review them and possibly name what is recognisable. In contrast, his paintings are an investigation of subject and technique, “I know what I want to paint, but don’t know how to do it”.

Bolten’s relentless pursuit for answers results in paintings with an intimate sensory and physical presence. 

Mike King

The driving visual force inspiring Mike King Prime's landscape paintings are the rainforests and beaches of north-eastern NSW and the deserts and canyons of south-western USA.

His style is quite unique, a progression from the traditional watercolour technique to a vibrant impressionistic realism using liquid acrylic colours. Using a basic four colour palette, he prefers to mix his own hues and colours. All works are painted on canvas or acid-free board.

Equally at home in both sides of the Pacific, he now has studios in Lismore NSW, and Scottsdale Arizona.

David Lane

After completing his study at the National Art School in Sydney he moved to the beautiful environs on the North Coast of New South Wales.

Regional New South Wales and in particular this glorious landscape which surrounds his studio remains a strong visual magnet for the work he produced. However having travelled extensively throughout Australia he has painted a variety of landscapes from desert to ocean.

David continues to be inspired by the Australian environment and successfully exhibits his work both locally and throughout Australia and is represented in a number of collections here and overseas.

Tony Leitch

Tony Leitch studied visual arts majoring in printmaking at Canberra School of Art in the late 1970’s. He was Head of Installations at the Australian National Gallery and has also worked in Museums in Saudi Arabia and China installing collections.

Tony’s landscapes and figurative work have been influenced by his experiences of living and working in Central Australia, Saudi Arabia, China and on the North Coast of NSW. His oil paintings have been purchased by Australian and overseas collectors.


Harry provides exciting workshops in water colour, but is just as happy in other mediums. Harry loves doing work "en plein air" and teaches in varying locations around the Northern Rivers. He loves painting in the environment so much he runs workshops on Norfolk island and in Assisi Italy, once a year. His free and natural style are an inspiration and he is the master of demonstration
