TERM 1 2022 RUNS FROM 8TH FEBRUARY TO 1ST MARCH


This 4 week painting course explores techniques of acrylic painting often using reference images as a stepping stone. Concepts are explored in class through exercises demonstrated by the teacher. These exercises touch on colour theory, paint application, composition, abstraction and the pictorial elements and principles of art in relation to landscape painting.Guidance is given and notes are provided on a regular basis. Students are encouraged to find their own voice and explore a subject matter within the landscape that inspires them.
