Does art call to you, like a scratch under your skin from the wild parts of you? Does it sing on the wind, deep down in your belly, in the places where you dream, before your mind comes in with all the reasons why you can't do this? If you are so called, but for some reason you think you can't do this... skill, talent, whatever it is... please get in touch. I tutor people of all skills and levels of experience, and you will be amazed at what you will achieve in this class. My last workshop saw an almost complete novice join us... and she created an amazing artwork, (see pic)!
I know how scary it is to make a start or even a comeback after a long absence from your art and/or creating, and so have combined quite a few methods that I myself have learnt and adapted into this program, so it is easy to follow and understand and produces great results in only 2 and half days, even if you have never painted before…
I am committed to helping people go home with an artwork that will grace your walls and inspire you to continue painting. We'll work together as much as needed so that in whatever direction you go, you'll go from an amateur artist to a confident painter who will wield a paint brush with newfound skills and direction.This is an expressive and bold approach to the normal art workshop. You will develop skills to respond artistically to the canvas in an immediate, powerful and spontaneous way and go home with a large full-scale artwork for your walls or to sell.
PLUS included in this package will be all your materials which you will take home, including a set of 12 tubes of the best quality Windsor and Newton paints, gesso, two mediums, varnish and brushes plus your large canvas. VALUE $375.00, as well as a heap of useful printed information and exercises, so that you can continue your journey at home without needing to go out and buy anything else, except a new canvas!
In this 2.5-day workshop, students will gain a wide range of skills to continue their own practice and will learn different drawing techniques, how to create textured sealed backgrounds, tone and colour mixing with a limited 12 tube palette incl. black and white, keeping your acrylics wet, how to layer your paints and use light and dark to create depth and richness, which is all used to capture the essence of the painting.
Students will produce a range of tonal and colour swatches to develop into a large resolved artwork by the end of the workshop.

I will conduct regular demonstrations of my own techniques and process during the workshop and will focus on individual tuition and extracting the best out of every student regardless of experience.
I will demonstrate both chiaroscuro (Italian term which literally means ‘light-dark’) and layering techniques in acrylic. The common threads will include ways of seeing and the surprising amount of planning and thinking required to make bold and expressive paintings.
Regular step-by-step demonstrations throughout will make the whole process easy and provide a great understanding of how to achieve vibrant images in your own style. You will learn how to create a painting from scratch to a professional level of finish in phases that are easy to accomplish.
