Over the six-week course, you will learn about contemporary and traditional approaches to painting the figure in oil paint. Beginning with drawing from printed copies using the traditional plumb line method for proportion, students will also be introduced to structure and anatomy in two sessions dedicated to drawing and painting from the live nude model. Students will complete one painting for the remainder of the course.

In addition to learning about the technical processes employed in Renaissance and Baroque Italian oil painting, students will gain a deeper understanding of the context surrounding the works’ creation through a supplementary guided tour with Gallery curators.

Painting and drawing demonstrations will be given to students throughout, with critical feedback aimed at facilitating each student’s individual needs and styles.

The course is suitable for all levels. Whether you’re a beginner or a confident painter, join us in the studio to flex your creative skills and learn some art history along the way. The course will also include a guided tour by one of our Gallery curators.

Please note that there is no class on Sep 7th.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
