Have you ever wondered why one poster or painting looks good but another one just doesn't work and you can't quite put your finger on why? In this class you will learn design principles to help guide you to create art that works. Learning how to effectively use elements of design is an invaluable skill that can be applied to a wide range of art forms from painting to digital design. This is a great course for students looking to improve their school art studies. You will explore ink, paint, collage and clay in your quest to make art that looks GOOD!


Intro to Drawing                Adults - FULL

Term 2 (7 weeks) Wednesday 10th May – Wednesday 21st June, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, $180.00

Tutor: Emily Armstrong (MA&D, BMA)

Artists can do magic…or so it seems. Some people have a natural ability to see something – really see it – and draw what they see near perfectly. In this class we get to delve into those seemingly magical skills and learn how to look at a subject and draw it. We will cover everything you need to get practicing on your own, from the basics of what pencil to use, when to use it, how to use it, and how to uncover your own natural style. We experiment with pencil, charcoal, pastel and ink. Basic materials provided for use in class.

The Drawing Club                Adults

2nd and 4th Thursdays due to start 22nd June, 5.30 and 8.00pm drop-in, $5 koha on the door appreciated

Tutor: Emily Armstrong (MA&D, BMA)

Every second Thursday, The Pencil Room is open between 5.30 and 8.00pm for anyone interested in practicing and improving their drawing skills or just dabbling in the art room. The Drawing Club sessions are self directed (not a taught class) and therefore suitable for people with some basic drawing experience who want to improve through practice. Bring your own drawing or painting materials (basic materials are available for purchase). Expect a range of interesting still life subject matter and scheduled life drawing sessions. Please register your interest for updates!
