Learn something new this year. Push the boundaries a bit!

Learn, shape, grow, reboot, refresh.

Would you like to learn something new this year? Or would you like to develop some skills you already have? We hear a lot about new directions at the start of a New Year. Often less than 24 hours after the “Happy New Year” bit. Perhaps it is built in with the idea of Resolutions! (Oh dear). But in a way a new year does offer an opportunity for new starts. It can be a turning point.
And for YOU?

Art tuition

Art tuition can come in many forms. Long streams, terms, short bursts, on-line or in person.

At present, my classes are formatted as short bursts. They are all in person (to date) and because of the size of my studio, they are small. That allows lots of opportunity for individual attention.

My 2017 art classes start early next month.
Fees for Basic Beginnings this year are $100 (total) for 3 sessions of 3 hours each. They will only run occasionally, probably only twice this year. So jump in NOW if you are interested!

Basic Beginnings – February 9th, 16th, 23rd; Thursday mornings 9.30-12.30

This is a look at three basic elements of painting, from a slightly different starting point.

We will work with shape, tone and colour temperature and use these elements to build a painting from a picture of your choice. These three are all crucial in composition and while learning about them one by one, we will integrate them into a final work.

You will be able to use your understanding developed in these classes to help you create more paintings on your own. Your knowledge will also assist you to “critique” your own work. These are not the only things you need to learn about painting of course but I believe they form a good foundation on which to build. I aim to keep it interesting and helpful and see you inspired and launched into painting!

In other words, you can take these lessons as a really helpful Basic Beginning.


The classes to follow the Basic Beginnings sessions will be Transition to Outdoors. More about T2O next time!

The aim of the class is to provide you with some basic understanding of shape, tone and colour temperature. There will be enough information to settle any self-doubts you might have but also enough to get you started.

I want to save you time by sharing some short-cuts I have learned over the many years of my painting practice.

Small classes also allow lots of individual attention for students.


The total fee is $90 for the three classes.

What to bring?

Paints and brushes are available for use in class but you can bring your own if you wish. The fee covers the cost of paper and canvas. You will need to bring an apron or protective shirt.

Be quick! There are only a few places available.

Yes, I am interested!
