Description

In this four-hour class you will gain a thorough knowledge of the varying qualities of Artists Materials available on the market today. We will take an in-depth look at the history and invention of materials and how they have impacted art production.  We will discuss the uses and applications of each of the following mediums/media:

Oil Mediums

Oil Paint

Brushes

Canvas, Linen and Substrates

Samples will be provided so that attendees can experiment with various techniques and find out how to achieve the effects they may want to utilise in their own practice. The aim of this lecture is to unlock the particular uses of materials and give attendees a better understanding of what materials are designed to do. It is suggested that you bring a notebook and pen to record any relevant information.

This class is suitable for beginners wanting to better understand the sometimes confusing choice of materials available, and for more serious artists wanting too make more informed choices to help get the results they want.

26 November 2019 • Oil Painting Materials Workshop

If you are studying oil painting whether it be at Uni, tafe or as a hobby this materials workshop provides invaluable information to progress your practice. Informative and in-depth students are exposed to a host of technical information and provided the opportunity to experience various mediums. The discussion on Hazardous, mid hazardous and low hazardous solvents prompted me to change the product I had previously been using. A highly recommended and rewarding course!!

This workshop goes into great detail and clarifies the technicalities of oils. Great if you want to refresh, clarify or start your oils journey. Kez was a generous and highly knowledgeable educator.

Workshop 10 till 2 Sunday 17th November was run by Kez Hughes in her friendly, open no nonsense manner. Covered a large topic in good detail with hands on material very helpful, with good academic information and practical advice. Coffee and great cakes were most welcome during a long session that sped past. Questions were answered very honestly with great advice and references. As a beginner I found this an invaluable help.
