This class offers students of all levels a comprehensive understanding of light, colour and the distinguishing features of natural forms.
Based on the traditional atelier system, students will work from the model and still life/casts.
Through an understanding of the core concepts that define the visual phenomena we observe, the student is able to rationally evaluate their subject, training not only their intellectual understanding but also their ability to see. Over prolonged study from observation with teacher demonstrations and individual critique the students develop the skills to better analyse their own work leading to greater progress and purpose in their independent practice.
All aspects of Painting and Drawing will be addressed, including colour mixing, composition, perspective, direct and indirect painting methods, materials and ideas/tools for successful study and practice.
The principles of this education lie at the heart of artistic heights all throughout human history. Nature is constant and unfailing, we learn to see and we learn to paint, where the student goes from there is what makes the art world an exciting and diverse place.
This class is also run on a Monday evening.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
