Melbourne Art Class welcomes one of Australia’s most extraordinary abstract artists – David Palliser – to conduct a course solely dedicated to abstract studio art practice.

This course covers the key elements and techniques of abstraction, and creates space for artists who would like to either revisit the fundamentals or take their exploration of abstraction to the next level.

A studio art style course means that it will be less structured than the Introductory course, with David taking on a mentoring role while participants explore and develop their work. David will still do some presentations but they will be fewer, giving participants time to explore.

A wide range of mediums are available, including drawing and painting in acrylics.

The course will explore the following:

  • Colour using collage and paint mixing
  • Positive and negative space as the starting point for an image
  • Intuition, gesture and risk

Classes sizes are limited to ensure one-on-one tuition.

David Palliser has had over twenty solo exhibitions and his work has been acquired by collections such as the Australian National Gallery, National Gallery of Victoria, Artbank, and Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery.

David has participated in numerous exhibitions, including Imagine, Heide Museum of Modern Art, 2006 and Melbourne Now, National Gallery of Victoria, 2013. David has also attended residencies at Leipzig in 2015 and Berlin in 2016.
