Our structured, introductory painting course for Term 3 will be taught by artist Hilmi Baskurt. You can read our student feedback below, and click here to read more about Hilmi.

This class is for complete beginners and intermediate painters and will focus on the fundamentals of oil painting. Our small class size allows for one-on-one tuition and you will work closely with Hilmi to produce a finished piece.

We work with Still Life in this course because it provides unparalleled learning opportunities for beginner painters.

Participants in this course are encouraged to develop drawing skills, conceptual understanding and technical proficiency in painting using a classical approach modified for contemporary use.

Over the five weeks, you will cover:

  • The compositional elements of a painting
  • Grisaille (underpainting)
  • Colour mixing
  • Various oil painting techniques.

You will be working on one piece over the five weeks.

Please bring along a canvas of at least 30cm on one side. All other materials will be provided, however you are more than welcome to work with your own brushes and oil paints.
