WINTER CLASSES 2021

 

Since September I had to learn how to teach on-line using the zoom platform. This has been a challenging journey, but I think I have almost mastered it now. I have been making recordings of the classes, which have improved with time and now I’m going to attempt some short painting technique videos.

Have a look at the classes being offered, in the new year. I hope you will join me.

 

1) “PAINT A LONG” ON-LINE GATHERINGS (SOME EXPERIENCE WITH PAINTING IS RECOMMENDED AS THERE IS NO FORMAL INSTRUCTION)

I am offering this opportunity to join me, and a supportive group of artists, as we paint together, from our own studios and connect on the Zoom platform. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get feedback on your work from me and the other participants

We will meet each week, for 4 weeks, using the “zoom” platform. As I may be away and don’t know my schedule, further classes will be announced later.

Dates: Thursday January 14, 2021- February 4, 2021
Times: 1.00pm – 3.45pm
Fee:   $72 ($18 per class for whole session or $20 for individual drop in classes.)

Class format
Participants are invited to send in an image of a painting they are working on for feedback from me and the group.
We will look at these together, at the beginning of the class.
Then I will offer a short meditation/centering practice.
Following this you will have the opportunity to paint on your own project.
Participants are able to ask for feedback or my input as we paint until 3.15pm on line or off line. At this time participants can show their work if they want comments from me and the group.

Different acrylic painting, and collage techniques  will be explored in a relaxed and playful on-line environment. This class is a follow-up class to the initial beginner class.
We will meet each week starting with 4 weeks using the “zoom” platform.

We will discuss and explore different tools  and techniques for applying paint. (Brushes, palette knife, scratching tools, glazing, impasto, pouring.)
We will paint our own tissue papers and use these as collage material in acrylic paintings.
