Course Overview

Learn to see beyond the bewildering details of your subject to gather the colour information you need to get your painting off to a great start! Discover how to think of colour in a way that enables you to mix the exact colour that you want confidently and directly, every time. This course in the application of modern colour theory to oil painting focuses on understanding how our perception of light and colour works, avoiding the confusion caused by common colour myths. The approach has given great results with both beginning and advanced students.

*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 youth art programs.
