course overview

Do you find mixing colour challenging and want to know more about how to combine colours to bring harmony to your paintings? This practical course builds your confidence by introducing the possibilities of colour using the three primary colours—red, yellow and blue—to harmonise your paintings. Achieve more with less! Karen Black guides you towards gaining new knowledge and confidence in mixing and understanding colour as tone; she discusses proportion, perspective and repetition, and creates colour charts to inform your ongoing research and practice. You will be encouraged to experiment with different approaches and techniques, use composition, line and space to bring greater context and skill to your practice.

Karen introduces strategies to develop your subject matter and selects artists and references that directly relate to your interests and styles. Working from small studies to larger more resolved paintings, progress your personal ideas for paintings from sketches, found images and collected objects. Karen provides individual mentoring, group demonstrations and regular critiques. The course is suitable for students with all levels of experience in painting using acrylics or oils.

Lecturer profile

Karen Black’s work explores loaded social and individual female driven narratives, traversing the complex interchange between the personal and the political. Black has a background as a costume maker in the opera and theatre and completed a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2011. She has been painting for over 25 years and has included ceramics in her practice since 2014. She has been the recipient of a number of awards including the Glasshouse Stonehouse Residency in France in 2019, which included the exhibition The Cook and her Driver at Gertrude Glasshouse in Melbourne in 2020. She was the recipient of the 2019 Artbank QPAC Commission and was also commissioned to make a new ceramic work for the exhibition New Woman at the Museum of Brisbane in Queensland in 2019. In 2019, 2018 and 2017, Black was a finalist in the prestigious Sir John Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. In 2017, she presented a solo installation of ceramics for the Sidney Myer Australian Ceramic Award at the Shepparton Art Museum in Victoria and was the recipient of an Artspace One Year Studio in Sydney.

Her work is included in numerous public collections including The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; The Australian War Memorial, Canberra; Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; the Griffith University Art Gallery, Brisbane; Queensland University of Technology Art Museum, Brisbane; Artbank, Sydney; the Macquarie Group Collection; and the Salsali Private Museum, Dubai.
