This course follows on from the Beginners Drawing and Painting course and gives students a chance to progress their skills by completing one drawing and one painting project of their own choosing.

Learn to plan your projects, creating balanced compositions and effective tonal and colour arrangements. Learn to edit your subject to emphasize the most interesting components of the image. You will be taught in a simplified, step-by step process, focusing on the correct application of materials based on traditional drawing and painting techniques.

Students who missed the last course but who have some experience with pencil and brush are very welcome to join.

$200/$180 InSight Members – Most materials are supplied: please bring your own brushes, painting palette and knife.
