Leisure Creative

Learn to paint still life paintings in a bold, colourful and contemporary style. Using a still life set up, you will learn to observe form, colour and tone from actual objects. Using acrylic paints, we will experiment with different techniques, styles and composition in small studies, before creating a final painting. We will take inspiration from Contemporary Still Life painters such as Cezanne, Morandi and Australian artist Margaret Preston. Suitable for beginners or those who have painted before and would like to expand their skills.

A starter kit is available to purchase for beginners at cost price including five tubes of paint, a disposable palette, six brushes and two canvases.($50).

Artist Carla Tucker will guide you in this short course.
