Includes an easy guide to composition, line, tone, colour and paint application, discovering your personal style. There will be different subject matters throughout the course. Bring your own reference images if you have a specific painting you would like to create. Advanced students also welcome. Your Tutor: Art has always been a part of my life, from drawing the things around me as a little girl through to a BA (Fine Arts) Honours Degree where I achieved firsts for painting and design. The vibrant West Australian art world has been an inspiration and I have taught all the different mediums since moving here more than 26 years ago. I have won a number of prizes for my paintings and sold extensively to people returning to a variety of countries.
