In this largely experimental class, learn to paint with no restrictions & unlimited imagination while exploring professional techniques and create abstract expressionist paintings. This is the perfect course for anyone who wants to develop their own style. In the first few weeks, we will learn how color & texture works, investigate texture combinations & learn how to paint in a spontaneous way. It is a largely experiential & exploratory class and not about the finished product per se, but more a lived experience that explores personal self expression through media. Students learn how to make choices, develop visual awareness & deepen their understanding of art processes through various media such as acrylics, water-colour, pastels or drawing media. We will also reference & get inspiration from artists (past & present) for example Jackson Pollack, Warhol & Keith Haring. The second half of this course will be open studio painting. During this process students will be encouraged to combine media & work with more un-traditional materials such as collage or mixed media to enrich paintings through a more personal approach. We will aim in this course to complete several pieces of artwork, but emphasis will be placed on working at your own pace. This is a great course for more adventurous students with some painting experience, but it is not essential- and we welcome beginners too, who want to roll up their sleeves and dig deep!

MATERIALS:

  • Painting supplies are included, but NOT canvas, please bring a canvas with you to your first class. We suggest a medium size canvas to start. You may need additional canvas throughout the duration of your course, depending on the project & how small/large you work.

  • Limited select size canvas are available for purchase at the studio- CASH ON DELIVERY $35 & up (Please have the proper change with you). If you require a LARGE CANVAS or speciality/custom sized canvas, please purchase & bring with you to class, as we may not have these available at the studio.

  • Speciality materials such as glazes or mediums might be introduced for basic exploration but are NOT available on a week to week basis, if you require these speciality materials please bring with you to class.

DROP IN CLASSES: Pick your own dates at drop in rates

***Please note if signing up for a drop in class, we do not guarantee that you will finish your project in one sitting. Single one-off classes are offered as fun taster sessions & are not meant to substitute for a full study in your chosen subject. As with all art it is not about the end result, but more about the journey, so if you don’t finish your project in one session, you can always book another session with us or finish your project at home! For a more comprehensive learning experience in your choice of media, we highly recommend signing up for a full Class PKG.
