Painting for Beginners

This class is designed for beginners in oil painting, although acrylics and their uses will be demonstrated later in the course. 

Thursday 9.00am - 12.00pm, or Thursday 12.30pm - 3.30pm. 
Tutor: Stephen Ramsay.  Cost: $247.50

Students are guided through a series of painting exercises, beginning with colour mixing and understanding the colour wheel. All the basics are covered, including preparing painting surfaces, the use of different tools for painting and cleaning up after painting. This is a traditionally based and landscape-influenced class, which will cover observation techniques, still-life subjects, sketching before a painting, how to paint from photographs and understanding composition and perspective. The tutor will take you through some paintings using step-by-step exercises after which you will be encouraged to develop your own style.
