Thursday 13 February to Thursday 09 April




Thu 13 February to Thu 09 April


Tauranga Historic Village, 159 Seventeenth Avenue


A fun time set in a chilled out relaxed and creative environment. Get really stuck in and learn something new each week and then build on it the next week. This 9-week course will be based on traditional painting techniques from old masters and some contemporary approaches applied to the genre. As well as covering a lot of ground, equally the focus will be on developing a solid understanding of colour theory, tonal relationships, proportion and composition. Progressing to use these ideas to develop believable 3d forms on a 2d surface.

Thursdays for 9 weeks
Starts: 13th February to 9th April
Time 1 – 3.30pm
