Term 1
Phillip David:  Portraits in Acrylic

Commencing Wednesday 5 February, 2020

Term code:  W1  

Cost $90 for 6 weeks

This series of classes is aimed at giving you confidence, and fun, in copying and giving character to the human face.  I hope you will relax and enjoy the process of creating. We will explore colour, shape, tone, line, shade and light and you will discover the secrets of Portraiture.

We will use paper &/or canvas sheets, so you don’t place great $ emphasis on each part of the process. Mistakes will be allowed – it’s human!   More details to be provided about the materials you will need.

Term 2
Lisa Ingerson:  Still Life in Oils

For 6 weeks, commencing Wednesday 8 April 2020

Term code:  W2 

Cost $90

Lisa’s classes will focus on Still Life as a subject, to be painted using oils with a palette knife and small brush.

Class attendees will undertake 2 paintings. One will be a tonal still life in black and white, while the second will be larger, and in colour.

As a guideline for those thinking of enrolling, some painting experience is preferred, but I am happy to teach beginners who wish to try their hand at this term of classes.
