In this class colour theory and brush technique will be covered. For those of you who have some experience, more advanced techniques will be covered. This fundamental class is essential for absolute beginners before launching into DAY TWO.
Here you will delve into a landscape composition in the spirit of Tom Thomson and the Group Of Seven. Examples of paintings are available or students are encouraged to buy a calendar.
In both days, there will be time for demonstrations and practise. The projects are designed to build confidence in painting AND to enjoy the creative release. There will be a short break half way through for lunch and discussion before getting back to WORK.
A starter kit ($60) may be purchased or bring your own. Please refer to supply list below.
