Event description



Join Michael Greves, a self-taught painter, as we explore painting for expression, basic skills and making brilliant mistakes together!

Exploration in Art: painting without/outside the lines

April 7 - First session - What is a painting?

Exploring brushes and paint application

Breaking down right or wrong

How do YOU paint

Colour for art and for you

Setup so students can only see their own canvas

April 14 - Second session - Still Life #1 - Solid objects and shadows

Does it look like the thing? Is it an idea of the thing?

Exploring the edges

Shape, shadow and colour together - playing within the structure

You get done what you can - enjoy what you are enjoying, there is no competition

April 21 - Third session - Still Life #2 - Organic shapes

Changing your lines

What is your view - small or big?

Painting what you see and how you see it

April 28 - Fourth session - Self-potrait, a memory, an emotion, a place

A personal image, painting for yourself

How other people see something doesn't matter

No rules, guidance and coaching

Students should provide their own "smock" - a full sleeve, button-down shirt or jacket which will get paint on it.
