"Simplification is not just a stylistic preference, it is a visual imperative. It is not a single idea imposed at one stage of painting, but a way of seeing the world that is fostered at every stage" - Mitch Albala
Intermediate level classes
For those that have completed the beginners course, or for those that feel that they're ready for something more advanced, I also run intermediate level classes. These classes build on the competencies that are started in the earlier classes by incorporating other, connected ideas as well as many that exceed the scope of the beginner. I deal with fundamental but essential requirements for success in drawing and painting such as perspective, proportion, composition, harmony and many other ideas. I talk about, and practice figure construction and portraiture, landscape and still life, and use many different methods for building and arranging the components of the image.
The classes are less structured in approach and proceed on a casual basis for the most part. However, there are plans to break down some of the ideas taught into separate workshops that can be undertaken as defined units.
The classes are $35 per session (two and a half hours). They are project based classes, rather than a 'course' like the beginners course, so you can start when it suits you.
Each class is limited to 10 people and I require a two week deposit ($70) to secure your place in the one you choose. This is what holds you a place and prevents someone else from walking into it. The deposit is reclaimable by giving two weeks notice, and using it to pay for the last two classes you do. Sound fair?
To book a place, fill in the form below and follow the prompts on the following secure payment page. Please advise which day/time you prefer, and any alternative that might work too. I'll call you if I need to switch you to the alternative you specify. I do my best to accommodate everyone's wishes but if I can't make it work on a day/time that suits you, I refund all monies paid immediately no questions asked. OK?
