The Cashmere/Port Hills Community & Business Association Mission continues;

Bringing Communities and Local Businesses Together; to support, celebrate and share our values, interests and goals as One Community.  Connecting Communities and to provide them with extra support to enable our Community & Business Members to thrive and achieve their Goals. Lest not we forget our heritage and history ‘who we are’ ‘where we come from’ Re-connecting Communities with our local history and heritage will bring us all together again and again as One Family Community.  

Education is perhaps one of the most important role derived from The Cashmere/Port Hills Community & Business Association VISION since its establishment in 2017.  An essential ingredient for personal and professional growth towards a  balanced, happy, successful and a meaningful, wealthy Community.

Let us all work together to have another productive, successful month be filled with exciting  opportunities and lifetime experiences.  We are One Community .. Together Towards Tomorrow.   STAY POSITIVE .. WORK HARD .. AND MAKE IT HAPPEN !

“I will be teaching how to apply washes, how tone plus colour gives “value”;, colour mixing, how to work for colour harmony, etc. Good drawing is the underpinning of representational and romantic- realist painting, so I shall teach linear and atmospheric perspective, drawing both with pencil and with brush. I will introduce the class to wet on dry overlaying, but also to wet in wet style, to suit the subject matter. We will start with simple subject matter and move towards more complex. Working from still life subjects is invaluable as all the above can come together Iin such work. I also hope that when we are ready we can try portrait painting in water colour. I intend to gear the rate of our lessons to the needs of the participants. Later I shall encourage you to bring individually chosen photos, but to begin with we can all work from the same photo to ensure we can master the basics together. I hope the class will feel free to ask questions at all times. ”

I’ve decided to do this because I was well taught the basics when I was much younger, and think it is time for me to pass what I have learned on. Also it is a good opportunity to raise funds for a charity I am involved with. This involves working on a heritage tram project at Ferrymead to which I have been contributing for some time. I look forward to share my painting experience with you all, Regards Don.
