Ticket Information:

  • Workshop Admission: $95.25

A great mini course for both beginners and experienced oil painters who want to learn about how oil paint works and the techniques of Sgraffito painting (scratch-back style). Have you been painting with oils for a while but find your works dull, muddy, lifeless or even cracked? Mine used to be before I learnt all this crucial information! This is a structured session briefly exploring the properties, history and science behind oil paint. Students will then experience painting in the Sgraffito style, with plenty of technical one-to-one tutoring in a small class setting. Good drawing skills are helpful but certainly not necessary as the focus is on technique and application of paint. Guaranteed fun, challenging and inspirational learning!

I supply:
• All paint
• Linseed oil
• Some brushes
• All glass palettes
• Palette knives
• Photocopies and info sheets
• Gessoed board

You bring:
• Brushes – acrylic and oil brushes, fine and bristly types, large and small. Make sure some are fine synthetic type.
• Thin latex style gloves
• Rags (fine weave)
• Old phone book if they have one
• Palette knife- artist’s diamond shape or similar, if they have one. (I have them too)
• Notebook and pen
