Description

MARCH 15TH - 12 APRIL: NATIVE FLOWERS

This course follows on from our Level 1 course, and explores a range of drawing and watercolour techniques under the guidance of Melbourne artist Judith Van Heeren, and is suitable for students who have completed our Level 1  course, or who have pre-existing watercolour experience. Each Level 2 course will focus on one topic so that students can continue painting with us throughout the year.

Over a four-week period students will continue to develop skills in the use of watercolours and exploring more complex colour-mixing, using the natural world as inspiration. 

Throughout the course there will be practical demonstrations, one-on-one guidance and the opportunity to ask questions. Students may choose to  bring their own paper, brushes and watercolours or pay a small fee to have all materials provided. A materials list will be emailed upon booking.

About us: Established in 2009 and based in a Victorian heritage building overlooking bustling Brunswick Street, Fitzroy Painting 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 Courses Level 2 and 3 in both painting and drawing..  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 class-passes for ongoing students at a discounted rate. Some of our students have gone on to Higher Education courses and are now exhibiting professionally!

Evening classes include wine and refreshments, 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, 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!
