Open Studio Mondays

OIL PAINTING

Our tutor has been teaching oil painting at Lake Street Gallery for the past four  years and teaches two classes on Tuesdays.  Classes are $10 each and students only pay when they attend.

Our tutor organises, helps and motivates students, creating a relaxed and safe space where students can develop their skills and talents. Both classes are suitable for both beginners and more experienced students as she guides each student step-by-step.

Each three hour class includes around 30 minutes of art related items of interest, students' discoveries and a little art theory. The remaining time is allocated to painting.   

This class has its own Facebook Group where students can add photos of their paintings, reference images, and generally keep in touch. Students are encouraged visit Youtube for oil painting ideas and tutorials.

This class also organises occasional social functions such as regular luncheons and art trips.

Oil painting is such a wonderful tried and tested medium to have fun with. You will love working with the creamy texture of the oil paints and appreciate how slowly the oil paint takes to dry on the palette.

WATERCOLOURS with Wayne Barry

FRIDAYS - 20 Oct to 17 Nov, 2023

10.00am -1.00pm

COST - $125 in advance

BOOKINGS -  0401 902 330

Wayne began painting thirty five years ago in the western Riverina district of NSW, basically teaching himself and encouraged by the popularity of river and bush scenes. Since moving to the area he has sought guidance from some local artists; June Young, Barbara Farnham, Lyn Butchart, Ronald Revitt, Robert Wade and more recently Herman Pekel, Grace Pelag, John Wilson, Madeleine Szymanski, Chan Dissanayake and Barry & Lucy McCann.

Wayne's lifelong fascination with water is reflected in his preferred medium. If not painting Wayne is surfing, surfboat rowing, scuba diving, kayaking and patrolling the beach.

He admires the watercolours of Hans Heysen, Alvaro Castagnet, Herman Pekel, Joseph Abukvic and Ross Paterson, and was lucky enough to attend the Mitchell School of Creative Arts summer 2004.

Wayne paints predominantly seascapes and landscapes, using high quality paints and prefers 100% rag papers, 300g and 640g papers by Arches and Saunders. His work has been purchased and sent around the globe. Wayne admits he is yet to tackle the subjects of still life and portraiture and the mediums, oils, acrylics and mixed media but he leans towards atmosphere and narratives as he grows as an artist.

This class is delivered over a five week term with full  payment in advance and covers the basics of watercolour techniques, colour theory and composition.  It is suitable for beginners and the more experienced alike.
