The course covers basic materials, improving skills for working from observation, and experimentation with a range of paint application techniques. Classes begin with an introduction to coordinating line use, compositional considerations, light and shade balances, and using colour relations. These are followed by theme based classes exploring different approaches to painting through looking at paintings by a selection of artists. Methods of composition and image making will be experimented with. Students are encouraged to develop their own interests and subject matter and build a self-directed range of techniques. In Painting for All students will engage with the versatility of acrylic paint as a medium to explore their individual approach to painting
