Elements of Painting
6 Week online course
We all know what we like and (with some minor discrepancies) most of us respond positively to “good” art.
This course explores:
-what make a painting “good”
-how you can apply these techniques to your own work,
giving your paintings that lift you have been searching for.
This is a great course for anyone who has attended my workshops/classes (or intends to) The lengthened course gives me an opportunity to delve deeper and share some of the ideas we can only briefly touch on, in the course of a one day workshop.
It's an opportunity to brush up on the basics, learn more of the fundamentals and gain further insight into my process.
Each week we will look at a specific aspect of the age old painting fundamentals and explore their application in both modern and contemporary methods of making art.
Each topic is designed to be applicable to a wide range of subject matter, so whether you enjoy portraits, still life or landscape, you can apply the ideas to your own work.
Every lesson you will receive an assignment designed to implement the strategies discussed in class.
There will be an opportunity to post your assignments to our facebook page to obtain feedback. Each class will be recorded so if you can't make the time slot you won't miss out!
