If you are a little lost or stuck in the mud with your painting, this class is for you! Bring paintings you have been working on or start something new. Here you can work out the challenges of composition and technique in the atmosphere of a studio filled with other creative people. You will have time to discuss your work both on a one on one and group basis.

PAINTING - weekend crash course!

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.
