Hamilton Road Studio - class places available

January 26th is Australia Day. I hope you will enjoy the day with family and friends. The day marks the end of the long summer holidays and the beginning of the school term. It's also a signal to get back to work.

Classes at my Hamilton Road Studio start this week. There are places available on Wednesday evenings 6.00pm to 9.00pm; and one place in each of the Friday and Saturday classes. The classes are small with a maximum of 6 artists. The class size allows for each person to work in their chosen medium, so the techniques of painting in watercolour, oils and acrylics are all covered. I believe that drawing is important no matter what medium you favour. Some time in each lesson is given to some drawing practice.

Drawing is a way to quiet your mind, to focus your thoughts. It can also be a private record of your experiences. If you've done a drawing of something you will understand it and remember every detail. As children, you will have done many drawings. Then as we get older, our inhibitions and critical judgement creeps in and we stop drawing. Drawing is a tool for investigating ideas, working out composition and solving problems on a small scale. 

Class times: 
Wednesday:    6.00pm – 9.00pm 
Thursday:        9.00am – 12.00pm                
Friday:            9.00am – 12.00pm
Saturday:        8.00am – 11.00am

New students can enroll for four weeks initially.  Students should preferably be prepared to enroll for a term (usually 10 weeks) when joining the Studio. 
Fees: $ 36 per lesson should be paid in advance and can be made in two instalments during the term. 

If you would like to know more about the Studio please contact me and I will send you the full information sheet.
