Finally got round to sorting out my newest entrepreneurial venture !! — what a way to enjoy my 2 favourite things ……. wine and painting and good company. Well I know that is 3 things but still……. combining my favourite pass times with like minded people is the ultimate enjoyment. So here’s the format. Each block of tuition will incorporate a 4 week project which will be rotated and repeated through the year. That way folks can choose which ‘blocks’ to do and only have to commit to the 4 weeks at any one time. That way they can produce a minimum of at least 1 canvas or more within that 4 week ‘block’ of tuition and then come away feeling like they have actually learnt something.
Topics of blocks;
1 – Impasto techniques using various acrylic mediums such as gloss gels, pastes and various sculpting mediums and layering paint with palette knives and other sculpting tools.
2 – Learning to make home-made alcohol inks and experimenting with alcohol inks on various surfaces.
3 – Watercolour and gouache techniques and basic colour mixing.
4- Intro to oil paints and blending techniques. Copy of a famous master piece painting and Alla Prima painting.
5- Intro to portraiture and transfer techniques – drawing, dry media and collage.
6 – Your very own Cosmic Creations using my light reflective paints and other luminescent materials.
So if any other these topics interest you stay posted to my Insta feed and FB profile for exact dates these ‘blocks’ will be covered. Classes are a maximum of 8 students and fine wine is optional — bookings recommended as I won’t encourage walk-ins…
At this stage classes will be held at my studio every Thursday 7 pm-9pm. Location is Blockhouse Bay, Auckland.
