Drawing / Painting for beginners and Intermediates
These sessions are tailored for those that want to start learning how to draw and paint.
Students that already have some experience in painting and would like to attend the classes are welcome to attend and work with their preferred media and on the subjects that they would like to improve.
Topics covered during the term include basics of drawing, line, shape and tone. Measuring proportions, use of perspective (linear and aerial) and the use of light and shadow and figure drawing. Understanding color and color mixing. Understanding how to control hue, value and saturation when painting in full color.
Individuals will start their first lessons by drawing still life objects. We will cover the basic principles of drawing such as measuring scale, linear perspective and use of light and shadow to create 3 D illusion on a flat surface. Individuals that progress and feel comfortable with their work will be able to start drawing and/or painting subjects that they choose. I will guide you through the process. There will be an introduction to landscape painting.
I would like to stress the importance of learning how to draw and how to be able to translate what is in front of you in the real world into a drawing or painting. The students that progress are always those that practice regularly and outside of the class.
A deposit is required from individuals committing themselves to the class.
Classes can be cancelled if numbers are not reached. In case class is cancelled the deposit will either be refunded or transferred to other sessions.
Materials Needed for Classes Please note that the fees do not include any materials needed, hence these need to be bought by yourself. Owning your own art materials is important in arts since you will need to practice outside the class in order to progress and become proficient in your skill.
Beginners will be doing only drawing and hence they will only need the tools for drawing (no need to buy paints etc)
Students who are going to start painting will need to buy their own basic set of paints. The total expense to buy all materials is approximately AU$ 150 (it might vary from one store to another). Here is a list of materials required.
