Are you ready to study oil painting immersed in a serious curriculum with like minded people?

This One Year Course consists of 12 full day sessions over the course of one year (10am – 4pm on a Saturday).  Dedicating a full day each month enables me to hone in the fundamentals of good painting,  giving students a solid course supported by demonstrations and critiques balanced with the student painting during class time.   Completing homework is a must and is supported by an online resources (additions being made regularly).  I have an ‘Advanced’ option for the more experienced students that runs concurrently with the monthly classes.

Monthly classes are held at the Doncaster Templestowe Art Society Building, 673 Doncaster Road, Doncaster, Vic.

There will be opportunities throughout the year to get together for paint-outs, retreats, dinners and other activities. Paint-outs are advertised on my website see Events.
