THE JOY OF PAINTING

Adult art classes on the Northern Beaches Sydney.

I offer weekly acrylic/oil painting classes in a relaxed atmosphere on Sydney’s Northern beaches. Classes are designed for all levels of ability, where you can learn new techniques and develop your own style.

I have been enjoying teaching painting classes on the northern for over 15 years and currently teach at Sydney Art Space, 64 Darley Street, Mona Vale.

MY INTENTION FOR STUDENTS…

Is for you to learn new techniques and develop your own style in a relaxed atmosphere. Most importantly I want you to have fun while expressing yourself creatively.

PAINTING LESSONS ARE DESIGNED…

  • to simplify the painting process, ideal for beginners, and the advanced students that want to loosen up and work freely and quickly
  • to show a new way to see shapes, colour, light and shade
  • to encourage students to develop their own individual style
  • to experiment with different techniques and materials
  • with each term different so you keep learning something new
  • to suit all levels
  • oil painters will learn how to build paintings with oils using the FAT OVER LEAN approach  and discuss different mediums such as linseed oil, cold wax etc

Material list available/emailed to you when booking.
