Oil Painting techniques of the “Italian Masters”
(4 week course)

Learn the techniques of the Italian Masters to finesse your painting.

Each week we will study a different Italian master from Michelangelo to Caravaggio. We will explore dark to light and light to dark, form, pigment and colour to develop your oil painting abilities and techniques.

Each class runs for 3 hours and will be strictly limited in size to ensure we can all learn as much as possible. The classes will be held in the beautiful fresh landscape of the Tallebudgera Valley each Saturday afternoon.
