These courses are taught by two exciting and young emerging artists Georgia Pricone and Elsie Preston. Both artists are proficient in observational realism and have solid consistent art practices.
Designed for teenagers aged 12-16 years, there are two directions in which students may pursue their studies:
1. CLASSICAL DRAWING
This course teaches students the fundamental principles of drawing realistically from observation. Student will learn about line, tone, perspective, composition and spacial relationships. Student may work from a selection of the following sources: still life, landscape (images and at the adjacent park), Master Art images, photographs, life models (clothed), self portraits using images and mirrors and photographs of faces to develop portraiture skills.
2. CLASSICAL PAINTING
The painting course studies classical imagery with an emphasis on learning how to use oil paint safely and to its maximum potential. Students will study composition, colour, texture as well as perspective, spacial relationship and composition. Most work will be based around classical Master sources and will be painted on canvas or other stable sources.
GENERAL INFORMATION ON OUR CLASSICAL ART PROGRAM
We strongly believe that a deep understanding of art history and a thorough examination of the techniques and approaches of the great artists of the past is of great advantage to students who are serious about developing solid painting skills across the many fields of art that they may choose to pursue in the future.
We invite students into this class you have a genuine interest in developing these disciplined skills and believe that by developing competency over time it contributes greatly to a sense of confidence and self worth.
Highly committed students with a serious interest at this young age of pursuing art as a pathway are invited to attend both classes.
