Over six weeks, artist Michelle Caithness will introduce you to:

  • Underpainting
  • Composition
  • Colour mixing
  • Colour theory
  • Value (light and dark)
  • Application of paint

Once you have covered the basics and have experimented with the medium, you will then create a painting over the final four weeks. Michelle will offer one-on-one tuition whilst you are working on your own painting. We encourage students to bring in a photo, or artwork which they would like to recreate. A simple still life will also be set up if students wish to paint from life.

All materials are included, except an A3 (ideally) or an A4 canvas pad, which can be purchased at art shops around Melbourne.
