Are you interested in exploring painting in a style between realism and abstraction?

This 7-week immersion into collage, colour and painting will draw inspiration from a range of expressionist painters who were more concerned with their emotional responses than an objective reality. Drawing on memory, imagination, dreams and collage this class will step you through a process to help you draw and paint expressively with your own painting signature. Suitable for beginners through to more experienced painters as tuition will be tailored to your individual level.

This training is subsidised by the NSW government.
