Learn to paint expressively with an individual approach while increasing your knowledge and understanding of the importance of colour, composition, and form.

Annabel Butler leads you through various approaches to landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, and interiors by referencing a selection of Australian, American and European expressionist painters who sought to depict their emotional responses rather than an objective reality.

Using acrylic or oil paint, students will learn how to mix and experiment with colour and will be encouraged to paint quickly and loosely and to develop expressive brushwork. Over the term you will produce a series of small to medium-sized paintings.

Covid-safe information
