Welcome to MOCO Gallery in the heart of Gariwerd, Grampians National Park. We are a unique contemporary gallery in an inspiring bushland setting with a full calendar of events including artist led workshops, regular exhibitions and artist talks, residencies and more.
MOCO has a full programme of artist led workshops and classes ranging from short morning or evening sessions to multi day courses. Classes range from adults evening classes and multi day courses to classes tailored to school groups and everything in between.
Our popular Friday & Saturday evening Canvas & Cocktails class is designed to give novice artists the skills and confidence to harness their inner creativity in a social and fun environment. You’ll explore materials and methods that will lead you to your own painting style. There’s no better feeling than looking at something you have created and saying, I made that! Art is self expression and we know everyone has the potential to create their own art.
The price includes your first cocktail on arrival, dinner in Adventure Cafe Bar and of course, the art class with all materials!
Canvas & Cocktails is the perfect social evening for individuals, friend groups, date nights, hen parties and team building events.
These sessions are available to groups at other times by arrangement, please get in touch.
Watercolour classes are taught in the gallery on a Sunday, these sessions are designed and run by practicing artists including Julie Kent, Amabile Dalfarra Smith and others, artists who will give you the skills to be able to create your own accomplished watercolour pieces from scratch. Teaching composition, brush techniques, colour blending and much more, our artists give you all the secrets to create a watercolour masterpiece. The ticket price includes a coffee or tea on arrival, lunch in Adventure Cafe Bar and of course, the art class with your take home materials kit. Treat yourself to a day of social creative learning. Check the calendar and book a session.
Printmaking workshops are designed for people with no experience in printmaking but wanting a place to start.
Each session is a little different and we work with methods such as relief printing, collograph and monoprint.
Students will create their own unique designs from a set of style examples while drawing from your own ideas and interests.
Sessions are typically suitable for anyone ( kids and adults) from ages ten and up.
Although usually held on a Sunday, we recommend you don't wear your Sunday best!
