In this class Carole's objective is to free people up and let them "out of their box" or mind set, so they are able to connect with their own feelings and express themselves with enjoyment along their own creative path. During the course of this process, they will acquire technical skills and stretch their boundaries in the use of paint and other material in developing their ideas.

Watercolour — The poetry of Watercolour
Tutor: Peter Porteous
Fridays 10.00am – 12.30pm
First Term starts Friday 3rd February
Cost: Term One — $195

While still touching on traditionalism and painting theory, the focus of this class is to explore a more casual, spontaneous, free-flowing and expressive forum.
The various applications of paint and water will create movement, which enhances the play of light, mood and atmosphere. This will be incorporated into various subjects. The essence of each student's unique style and creativity will therefore be absorbed into their work.

Students will be using mixed media (graphite, charcoal, inks, pastel, coloured pencils, etc. on a variety of surfaces. Five of the nine sessions will be using a life model. The remaining sessions will be working from other life studies by famous artists (Delacroix, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Rodin, etc.), as well as some general drawing.
