It is is always an honor to be re-invited to teach at the annual Albany Summer School.
This year I returned for a third time to celebrate the 63rd anniversary of one of Australia’s longest running Summer School Events.
Once again my class was fully booked with a team of 12 talented and enthusiastic students – all at different levels of oil painting experience. Together we mastered the art of painting in oils and enjoyed a fun week of creative learning with lots of laughs and amazing results.
Thank you to my fabulous team of artistic students, some of whom have joined me each year and become friends during their artistic journeys.
Once again I was overwhelmed by everyone’s enthusiasm and very proud of your spectacular results.
Huge congratulations to each of you.
It is an honor to be re-invited to teach at the annual Albany Summer School. This year the school celebrated an anniversary of 61 years an achievement giving the school recognition as being one of Australia’s longest running Summer School Events.
This year I taught two classes over the second week of the school curiculum program.
The morning class was titled “Understanding Light Dark Harmony” where students were shown how to identify value and tone. The afternoon class was titled “Mastering the Art of Colour Mixing” where students created their own colour wheel and learnt how to match colour using 3 primary colours plus white.
All students were encouraged to create their own artwork using the oil painting techniques learnt in class.
The results were remarkable with nearly every student completing their own oil painting within class time. To my amazement some students had never used oils or even painted before.
We laughed, cajoled, shared learning moments, but most importantly had fun.
I am so proud of all my students, who’s results speak for themselves. Thank you for joining me at Albany Summer School 2021.
Congratulations to each of you!
