FEBRUARY - Learn to Draw - For Beginners (6 week course)

Learn to Draw - For Beginners (6 week course)

Contact Jacksons Balcatta on 9240 1795 or balcatta@jacksons.com.au

Drawing brings so much joy. Anyone can draw but not everyone can create good drawings. Good drawing begins with learning the foundational skills like tone, values, shading and perspective. Once you have those skills, you can express yourself in a way that is far more authentic than words for all true art is about expression. Most paintings begin with a drawing and many famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh used pencils in their paintings.

This 6 week course will give you the foundations of drawing which can be just the beginning of your artistic journey and new way of expressing yourself.

Date 6 week course begins: Sat 3rd February 2018
Times: 10:00am to 12:00pm each week
Venue: Jacksons Balcatta
Cost: $250 total for 6 weeks. Gift vouchers are available.

APRIL - Pastel Painting Workshop - Reef and Crystal Clear Water with Ann Steer

The one-day workshop provides an opportunity to spend the day focusing on pastel painting and caters to a range of different skill levels. My classes start from a position of encouraging students to paint in their own style. I strongly encourage people to view images and translate what they see in their own special way. 

I am passionate about colour and will show you how to use it to enhance your work. I will encourage you to try new things, and push your out of your comfort zone by experimenting with new techniques. As a teacher I am generous in sharing knowledge and provide you with live demonstrations. Above all, this is a class to have fun painting what we are passionate about. Whether you're looking to improve on already-existing skills or just dip your toe into something new, the workshop program provides a relaxed happy environment to learn about pastel painting.

At each workshop I will begin by giving a demonstration and then you will commence on your own piece. I will continue to guide you throughout the course of the workshop. I have many photographs that you can choose from for your inspiration or alternatively please feel free to bring your own photograph.

Reef and Crystal Clear Water - $65.00
7th April 2018 – Saturday 1pm to 4pm  

This workshop I will begin by giving a demonstration on how to create that wonder crystal clear water with reflections of light glinting in the sun.  I will show you how to add in some reef and create your own wonderful painting.

What you will need:
I understand that the cost of art materials is expensive so I will offer the use of my pastels during the class for a fee of $10 per lesson. If you have your own pastels please bring them.  

How will I know what to paint?  That is easy, each week I bring a folder full of images and you get to choose your own image and if you prefer bring something from home to paint.

Do I need to bring anything to class? I provide all the easels and tape, you will need to bring your own pastels, paints, paper and canvas can be purchased on the day at the shop. Also it pays to bring some baby wipes to clean your hands as we all end up looking like pastel warriors at the end of the day with it all over our faces! For a full materials list, please contact Ann.
