Description

In this four-hour class you will gain a thorough knowledge of the varying qualities of Artists Materials available on the market today. We will take an in-depth look at the history and invention of materials and how they have impacted art production.  We will discuss the uses and applications of each of the following mediums/media:

Oil Mediums

Oil Paint

Brushes

Canvas, Linen and Substrates

Samples will be provided so that attendees can experiment with various techniques and find out how to achieve the effects they may want to utilise in their own practice. The aim of this lecture is to unlock the particular uses of materials and give attendees a better understanding of what materials are designed to do. It is suggested that you bring a notebook and pen to record any relevant information.

This class is suitable for beginners wanting to better understand the sometimes confusing choice of materials available, and for more serious artists wanting too make more informed choices to help get the results they want.

THE FITZROY PAINTING STUDIO IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED DURING THE CURRENT MELBOURNE LOCKDOWN.

We are contactable by email during this time, and will reschedule all classes once we know when we can reopen.

About us: Established in 2009 and based on the top floor of a Victorian heritage building overlooking bustling Brunswick Street, Fitzroy Painting for Beginners is the original and best of private art classes in Fitzroy!  A working artists studio, the space provides a great environment to develop your painting and drawing skills with the expert support and guidance of highly qualified teachers and full-time professional artists.

Our 4 - week beginners courses in oil painting, drawing and watercolours are designed for the complete beginner, taking you through a series of exercises and building your skills week by week. Students may choose to continue to our Beginners Course: Level 2. Ongoing students are supported to help develop their own direction, with optional exercises offered to expand on skills and knowledge, and our Atelier students are assisted in taking it to the next level in professional practice.

Love the class? All students wishing to extend their course may purchase 4 or 8 - week blocks for ongoing students at a discounted rate. Some of our students have gone on to Higher Education courses and are now exhibiting professionally!

Need to miss a class? We understand busy lives and offer flexibility - just let us know in advance and we'll credit you a class. (Maximum of 2 changes per 8 weeks, ongoing students only).

Evening classes include wine and cheese, and morning classes include tea, coffee and cakes. Classes run for 3 hours and basic equipment is available for student use at the studio, including easels, aprons, palettes and drawing boards. We believe in safe studio-practice and provide low-toxic, low-odour materials for student use, as well as high-quality clean-up materials for brushes and hands. We also have storage facilities if you wish to keep your materials at the studio.

Each student works at their own pace and receives one-on-one attention, and all students are invited to exhibit in our annual end of year exhibition, a fun opportunity to show family and friends what you’ve been doing!

If you want to go beyond the superficial to understand the materials you’re working with then this is the course for you. It provides information in an engaging fashion by people steeped in the knowledge of their product, peppered with humor and historical anecdotes you cannot find on Wikipedia. It was of enormous interest to me - and you get down and dirty with your hands as well! Very worthwhile.

If you are studying oil painting whether it be at Uni, tafe or as a hobby this materials workshop provides invaluable information to progress your practice. Informative and in-depth students are exposed to a host of technical information and provided the opportunity to experience various mediums. The discussion on Hazardous, mid hazardous and low hazardous solvents prompted me to change the product I had previously been using. A highly recommended and rewarding course!!

This workshop goes into great detail and clarifies the technicalities of oils. Great if you want to refresh, clarify or start your oils journey. Kez was a generous and highly knowledgeable educator.
