BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN PAINTING - Term 1 Art Class - 5 WEEKS - (March 1 - March 29)
5 Wednesdays - $300
Wednesdays 9am - 2pm
March. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
We are going to spend the next five weeks exploring how to simplify complex areas of still life, florals and landscapes. We will “preload” paintings by following a few small design steps before we even start mixing paint, that will ensure greater success for the overall process. With this new skill you can more confidently take on those paintings that you haven’t dared try.
Each week's class will start out with some instruction and sometimes a demonstration by me and then the class goes on to paint their piece.
Areas of focus will be:
Simplifying up front with the humble thumbnail sketch
Simplifying with a value plan and colour groups
Tackling complex subjects like dappled tree shade, fabric patterns, florals without definition like hydrangeas.
Using brushwork and temperature to create definition
Note: Oil is my dominate medium and demonstrations will be given in oil however acrylic artists regularly attend my classes and the instruction crosses each medium successfully.
Bring your usual painting supplies. If you are a beginner, contact me and I'll send you a list of things to start with.
I recommend painting on smaller 8x10 or 8x8 sized panels/canvases or 12x12 / 12x16 in order to keep the ratio of the photos you will paint from.

It is the first driveway after Boscombe road and before you reach the General Store - through the gate with the white timber, on the hill behind the Showground oval. If you miss the turn off you can turn around at the round about at the end of that street.

Cancellations and Refunds
Full refunds for change of mind or unforeseen circumstances will be offered up to 5 days prior to classes or workshops beginning as there is still time to readvertise the place. Otherwise I am not able to offer refunds as I have up front payments for the venue and supplies for the class. The class fee is for the term. Unfortunately I am unable to give refunds for individual lessons missed as the cost covers not only the lesson, but supplies I will provide during the term as well as the venue. Please consider your ability to commit to the class before purchasing.
