Fine Art Teacher Newcastle – Figurative Painting
I have taught figurative painting at both Primary and High School Level at schools including North Sydney Boys, Presbyterian Ladies’ College Sydney and Gosford High School. These art classes are usually in the form of a day work shop focusing on one aspect – portraiture or still life for example. On occasion I have been asked to do longer week long courses.
I occasionally run day courses in aspects of figurative painting for adults. I have taught various aspects of observational painting at Maitland, Lake Macquarie and Newcastle Regional Galleries, and longer week long courses at Sturt Winter School in Mittagong.
In my working practice I was taught and like to stick to the three main aspects of figurative painting: structure (drawing), tone and colour. These are the elements I strive to put across in my teaching in as entertaining and informative way as possible. It’s all about close, considered observation of the world!
I’m currently working towards a big solo show in 2021 at the Newcastle Art Gallery so the teaching is on hold, but please sign up to my mailing list if you would be interested in hearing about any upcoming courses!
