***If your 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.

CLASS SYLLABUS: The classical approach to painting is proving to be more popular today, as many artists are trying to reconnect with traditional practice. In this valuable course, we will first begin by getting familiar with the genre of classical painting & learn the principles of academic oil painting and brushwork. We will cover topics such as composition, perspective, gesture, proportion & the use of light and color to create vivid artwork. Discussion on classical themes, & inspiration from master painters such as- Vermeer, Caravaggio or John Singer Sargent etc. We will study scale, volume and light and how to evoke emotion. Students learn the secrets and benefits of working sight-size and learn professional methods behind colour mixing, to ensure colors stay true to the subject. Organizing the palette, value and edges will be covered, discussed and demonstrated, how to use special effects (used by the Masters past & present) and how to enhance texture, tone and mood. In depth personal critiques will be provided throughout the course. Final projects will culminate in copying a master painting (of each student’s own choice- landscape or Portrait style) which is great way of improving painting skills & developing personal style, whether one is an established artist or a beginner.
