The painting classes are for beginners or advanced students.  Each student is given assistance on an individual basis whilst benefiting from the stimulus and atmosphere of working in a small group of painters.  In the class each student works on their own program to develop their skills in whichever medium they choose, watercolour, acrylic or oils.  All styles of painting are catered for and special programs are worked out with each individual to suit, whether they are experienced or beginners.

Folio Preparation

These classes are for students who are studying year 11 or 12 Art or Studio Art, or who are wishing to put together a folio to get into an art course. Students are given assistance with developing themes and directions for their folio, assistance with the development work and direction and assistance with the final pieces for the year 12 folio. Most students who have worked with me in the past have received an HD standard in their folio. If students are wishing to put together a folio for art school admission I can assist with the areas and elements needed for a successful folio.
