Indulge in the magic of drawing or painting outdoors in natural light. Enjoy the fresh air as you capture the local landscape. Experience why this was so popular with the French Impressionists. We will spend a few weeks in three separate locations, where you will be guided through practical tips on composition, sketching, building up form and structure and developing your own style. For beginners or advanced students.
About David Pavich
David has taught a wide range of students both young and old, male and female, complete beginners to advanced students. David says that the beginners are often understandably quite nervous at their first class but astounded at times by their rapid progress during the course. This motivation is also inspired by having some of the regular students working around them. "This course is a great opportunity for students who not only love drawing or painting but to get up close to nature and discover locations they may not have visited before."

Mosman Evening College was established in 1949 when the NSW state government, under the Shared Use of School Premises Agreement, made classrooms and halls in NSW schools available in the evenings for local community groups to conduct courses.
On opening night, 293 students submitted their application for enrolment with classes in Dressmaking, Music Appreciation, Dramatic Art, Weaving, Cooking, and Woodwork & Millinery. Further classes were contemplated in physical education for females and glove making.
Today we offer over 300 courses per term for students of all ages both day and night for members of the Mosman Community as well as further afield. Most of our classes continue to be held at Mosman High School, however an increase in the number and variety of courses on offer has lead to other local venues being used.
In 2002 the college became known as Mosman Community College with the mission of providing lifelong learning opportunities in the local area.
