Adult Studio Art & Design

STUDIO EXPLORATION for ADULTS (beginners and continuers all welcome)

  • PRACTICAL  Gain practical media skills in the studio;  techniques & experiments using a range of different media including drawing and painting, graphic techniques, digital art, craft & mixed media, printing and sometimes using natural materials, recycling / repurposing and a lot of imaginative experimentation.

  • STYLES  Are you interested in making work that is .... Abstract / Impressionist / Expressionist / Realistic / Stylised / Graphic / Minimalist / you-name-it  ? Do you love landscapes / portraits / nature / dreams / stories / cultural traditions / you-name-it? We aim to build your skills so you can create and interpret things you love in your way. 

  • SOURCES   Consider how art can convey a whole range of ideas and inspiration. We will look at various art examples that inspire us, and we analyse how the work has been created. Ideas or themes may come from a range of art styles, cultural and societal sources including traditional and contemporary. In addition to beautiful things we see in the world, art is also embedded in concepts, faiths & beliefs, philosophies, popular movements and issues in the world around us. From these sources we will discover a whole variety of ideas to reinterpret in our own way, and to tell our own stories in the art we create.

  • OUR STUDIO ENVIRONMENT cosy numbers and personalised tutoring! Learn at your pace and we encourage peer learning with mixed ability groups. Great conversations !

For Digital Storytelling, our staff will need to undertake more direct and one-on-one instructions with each storyteller and we will also be working on many of the digital and technical operations for you between sessions.
The FULL FEE  $230*  is required for this programme because of the work needed to complete the project  (ie. no pay as you go). However, if you wish to negotiate to pay in instalments, please let us know and we can work something out.
