Develop and refine your understanding of the visual language of painting and build confidence in your own practice. Tonee Messiah guides you in how to choose meaningful subject matter and translate it into imagery while understanding how to decide on appropriate styles to render your paintings in colour.

Be guided through a series of exercises that introduce the basic principles intrinsic to painting, including style, colour mixing and application, and idea development.

Tonee leads group discussions and demonstrates how to identify students’ individual areas of interest and translate them into content for artworks.

She also introduces expressive painting techniques, abstraction, colour as a powerful emotive tool, and translation of narrative into visual language. The initial exercises will be set in either acrylic or oil paints, and students can also add mixed media as the course progresses. Tonee gives individual tuition to assist students with deciphering their initial ideas, developing their compositions, and applying techniques to develop a suite of finished paintings.
