Expressive Painting With Colour and Light


Mondays, 6:30pm to 7:30pm Monday 29 April to Monday 1 July


Adult: $340

Learn how to use acrylic medium while also delving into the most important aspects of painting, including composition, tone/value, and colour. 

In this course, students will have the opportunity to examine the work of celebrated artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edgar Payne, Arthur Streeton, and contemporary artists that interest us. 

The course starts by copying paintings that inspire you to understand the basics, but we encourage you to bring your own references and eventually create your own masterpieces. 

Throughout the course, we'll cover a range of topics, including still life, flowers, landscapes, seascapes, urban scenes, animals, and people, allowing you to explore what interests you the most.
