Painting and Drawing for Beginners

  • A foundation course in drawing and painting skills for absolute beginners.

  • If you are new to art or extending your artistic skills there are many benefits in developing painting and drawing skills at the same time. You will find that improving your drawing ability will accelerate your progress in painting.

    Drawing more accurately means you can move into the painting phase sooner, reducing distractions from trying to "fix" mistakes in the drawing, letting you focus more time on developing your painting.

    This art class will introduce you to different approaches to the process of drawing and planning phase before you begin to paint. You will be taught how to develop your drawing into a painting and understand how the two skills come together to create a finished piece of art.

Portraiture, Life Drawing and Figure Painting

  • In this art course you will start by learning skills in portraiture. You will then develop this skills in life drawing and then finally figure painting. 

    Portraiture is an immensely rewarding painting experience.  Even those who are just starting out in art find that the activity of painting another person is immediately engaging.  

    Some artists mistakenly avoid portraiture as they feel it is "too advanced" for the level they are at.  Nothing is futher from the truth.  

    One of the great aspects of portraiture is that it allows an artist to explore their use of colours and styles to capture the soul of their subject in a way that surpasses a photographic image.  If you have a look at some of the works in our student gallery you will see a range of works that each have artistic merit regardless of the level of technical skill.

    This is a course for oil painters who love portraiture, but who may not yet have portraiture skills or experience, especially in painting a portrait from life.
