Course Outline

This course explores techniques and mediums of acrylic painting, composition, colour, abstraction, representation, collage and the use of text in art. . In the studio Christine introduces you to the relationships between primary, secondary and tertiary colours, as well as tone in relation to the theme of abstraction. This may involve experimenting in pure abstraction or abstracting from reality including landscape elements, still life, space or the figure. You will learn how to combine two and three dimensions in the form of collage, using natural human-made materials to construct a relief painting. The aim is to produce a series of smaller finished works or a large-scale painting that brings together techniques such as colour, collage, abstraction and text informed by your personal, cultural or political concepts.

*Short courses are open to students of ages 16 years and over. For students under 16 years of age there are School Holiday Workshops, Art Club and other programs.
