Terms and Conditions of Enrolment

Course Outline

For thousands of years, artists have devised ways to create works of art that inspire and delight audiences, as well as investigate materials to develop and refine those visual illusions. Join Kim Spooner as she introduces you to the materials and craft of painting. Students will be shown how paint is made and the purpose of paint mediums. Four techniques – acrylic, oil, egg tempera and encaustic will be demonstrated and explained from Kim’s studio. Kim will provide a history of the techniques, display examples of them and encourage you to complete your own compositions over the length of the course.

*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.

Course delivery

Kim’s online studio course is taught with Zoom and takes advantage of the full range of tools that this program offers. She is present in the online studio for the whole session and she responds directly to student questions in live critiques and discussions. We are also using Padlet in this course, Padlet is a web application that allows users to post information and images on a digital wall.

If you are unfamiliar with the Zoom program, some tutorial assistance is available prior to the commencement of the first session to ensure you can join in with ease and get to know the online learning environment. You will be guided in Padlet usage by your Lecturer and you can get additional tutorial help from NAS.

Class sizes are limited to a maximum of twelve students and the sessions are not recorded.

Kim Spooner’s incisive and expressive paintings and portraits are held in public and private collections. Represented by Annandale Galleries, Sydney, and Adele Boag Gallery, Adelaide, she was awarded the Onslow Storrier Studio Residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, in 2008. Kim is a prolific exhibitor, and her practice involves constant dialogue with contemporary and historical masters. Her recent exhibitions explore narratives using metaphor and allegory, recalling personal history and creating visual stories that refer to the human condition. She is a figurative and still life painter and an expert in encaustic and egg tempera techniques. Kim’s skills as a draftsperson have been recognise in recent times, with her large-scale drawings being shortlisted in major exhibitions and awards such as the Dobell Prize for Drawing.
