Classes are based on a theme set for the duration of the project. I will demonstrate the basics of starting the painting, including layout, composition, applying a ground, initial drawing, blocking in the color ranges and creating the value map. From here you will commence your own work with help given based on needs. Demonstrations will be done throughout until the conclusion of the painting, showing techniques and principals. Drawing will be considered as part of the work and we will do exercises to help improve drawing skills in a fun and light manner. At the end of the term you can re-enrol in the next one to save your place in the class. Students will need to bring their own materials with them for each class, including but not exclusively:
  • Canvas or Canvas board/paper (12″x 14″ or 12″ x 16″)
