This two-day workshop is suitable for students who are just beginning their painting journey but ideally have done a beginner’s course such as BSA’s “Start: Up: Beginning To Paint & Draw” or similar.

Over the two days, students will develop their individual approach in either still life or abstract painting. We will investigate artist models and different techniques as well as covering the basics such as priming canvases or boards and using various mediums.

Bring your own art materials. To purchase any art supplies, specialist art shops are the best option and will provide student discounts if you mention that you are attending the school. The stores we recommend are:

Studio Art Supplies: Crummer Road, Grey Lynn

The French Art Shop: Taylors Road, Morningside

Gordon Harris: Newmarket and Symonds Street, Auckland Central

Takapuna Art Supplies, online or Helensville
