Course Information

General Workshop Information




If you have no materials at all then you might like to order an artist quality acrylic resource kit or oil painting resource kit when you enrol online.
The resource kit provides the basic materials you will need to participate in the workshop and is priced at a discount to retail outlets.

Also bring along a canvas to work with. Something about 30cm x 40cm is ideal - not too big and not too small.  

You will need a plain old pencil and eraser to draw with. 

If you already have some materials don't feel the need to rush out and buy additional brands or colours of yours don't match exactly. Your tutor will typically be able to work with what you have.

But if you have any questions feel free to call and ask.

Gary's list of colours


Cad Yellow Light

Cad Red light scarlet

ultra marine blue

Pthalo Blue

brilliant violet

brilliant Magenta

Dioxazine purple... he uses this colour as a black 




Tea and Coffee making facilities are available.

We suggest you bring a light lunch - something not too messy so that you can work while your draw or paint. Most workshops are fast paced and most tutors will "work" through lunch - but feel free to break for a bite to eat - we don't want you fainting!


DOs and DON'Ts

Relax and enjoy yourself.
Be encouraging of other people.

Don't be nervous.

Most people will be new at this. And you will find that there is something about doing art that makes people more friendly. If there are more experienced artists in the class you will find that they are more than willing to share what they know as well.
That is one of the great things about learning in a group environment.

Please turn your mobile phone to silent while the workshop is in progress.
