2017 – Yaroomba Beach Artist-in-Residence Akira Murata – Japan
A Generous Teacher and Fantastic Participants – thanks to all!
Our last day – tidied up and ready to go home – some Participants had to head off – apologies Guys that we missed you for this record!
Akira’s technique is to mix and paint a sample of his Work – letting the Participants appreciate the colours, techniques – shapes and layers that he uses – then the Participants can let loose themselves and head to their paper – working with fluid brushes and palettes to evolve their Work as far as they are able 😀
The most amazing aspect of these Workshops with Akira Murata – was the time he spent with each Participants to take their palettes and their Work and show them how he would work ……….with their tools to add depth and final detail to their paintings – which took each Artist’s breath away – as their work was adjusted and lifted to a magic level by the ‘Master’ – thanks Akira for your patience and time!
‘Big’ Thanks to our Sponsors – Sekisui House!
Speeches – Evan – Wyn and Akira
Big thanks to Tomika in black – without whom this would not have come together!

2017 has been a fantastic year – we are currently reviewing our ‘Exhibitions and Programs‘ for 2018.
All of our Artists and Sponsors have been amazing – and special in their own right – they also support the underpinning key goals of Fish Lane Studios – International Art Collective – to create a world that enhances our living for all people.
Particularly our ‘Immersive Installations‘ – Environments to assist with the enhancement of well-being in our clinical and built environments – over 2017/18 we are working with Post Grad PhD Artist and Researcher – Alex Ashton to complete Research on the impact of our Installations and understand how we can enhance and deliver greater benefits from these creative spaces!
