Hello there. I’m very excited to introduce you to my small group painting classes in my studio at Umina Beach on the NSW Central Coast.
A small group classes will enable you to receive individual attention, allow you to ask as many questions as you need and will generally produce an enhanced learning environment.
You will be guided through all the stages that I go through to create my unique and colourful paintings, and come out the other end not only with the with the skill to re-create another one at home, but your very own completed canvas to take home.
In this class you will:
- Create a finished painting using professional acrylic paint on a deep edge canvas.
- Learn a little about colour theory and colour mixing, not too much as that is a workshop by itself.
- Learn about the quality and types of acrylic paint and other materials.
- Do warm up exercises to get you thoroughly in the mood to paint.
- Use paints, pencils, stencils and other art materials to create a colourful and interesting background.
- Learn different ways of applying paint from brushes to fingers to household items.
- Finish your painting off with a background colour of your choice.
- Learn a new skill in a fun and supportive environment.
The class is held in my studio at Umina Beach, which is under my pole home in a bush environment with a lots of trees and birds around. Half way through the workshop we will have a small break for a cuppa on the deck off the studio.
So why not awaken or re-awaken your creativity? Take some time for yourself in a supportive and friendly environment and take home your very own completed masterpiece?
Please get in touch if you have any questions about this class, I'd love to hear from you.
This painting experience would also be a great idea as a gift for your mum, friend, aunt or YOU!
"Jenn is such a wonderful teacher and is so patient and encouraging. If you have the opportunity to take a class from Jenn you should do it, in addition to learning new skills and unleashing your creative spirit you will be immersed in the beautiful world of Jenn, her laugh, her heart, her delightful stories and personality will win you over. I cannot wait for my next art class with her." Julie, Forresters Beach
No experience required, just enthusiasm. This class would suit total beginners and those with some painting experience who would like to learn new techniques and/or styles.
What to Bring:
Just yourself and your enthusiasm. All materials are provided.
An apron will be provided to pop over your clothes, but I recommend only wearing clothes that you wouldn’t mind if they were splashed with a bit of paint.
Having said not to bring anything … you may want to bring along an old sheet or towel to transport your painting back home in case it is still a little wet.
Other Things I Need to Mention:
:: A minimum of two students will be required for the class to go ahead. You will be notified two days prior if the class is to be postponed. Please contact me at any time for updates, or check with my website.
:: Please be aware that there are a number of stairs through my front garden leading down to my studio.
:: My studio is on the bottom level of a pole house which is set set up high off the ground, and there are no boundary fences between us and most of the neighbours, therefore it is not suitable for children.
:: COVID Safe: I am approved by the Central Coast Council for maximum of six students in the studio area.
"Thank you Jenn. As a true beginner I feel so inspired & well informed after my Beginners class with you. I love your creativity & passion, & your studio is such a wonderful place to be. It was hard to leave ! I'm already thinking about which class to do next." Melissa, Berowra
