Foundation Painting: Spots remain in morning session

Foundation Drawing at The Art Room

 

Our upcoming Foundation Painting evening class is now fully booked, however if you are quick there are a few places left for the morning session.

This 8 week class is aimed at both complete beginners and those with some experience who wish to improve their knowledge of the fundamental principles in painting. Intended to follow on from the Foundation Drawing class (but may be taken separately) this class aims to demystify painting. It is an introduction to painting techniques and materials and will give participants the confidence and knowledge to explore and work with paint in many different ways.

The program will cover oil and acrylic painting and will involve demonstrations and practical exercises designed to build your knowledge and confidence in paint handling and colour mixing, as well as techniques such as under painting, working wet in wet and glazing. This course will expand your painting experience and provide a foundation of knowledge for your future art practice.

A little note from our Director:

WOW what can I say!  I am totally overwhelmed and so incredibly touched by the support that has been shown to The Art Room. I can’t thank you all enough for not just your pledges but your kind words of support and encouragement, offers of help and donations to our studio. I am really humbled and touched. I promise to make the best studio I can for you all to come and be inspired in, to be challenged and to learn in. It is YOUR studio and I love that we are creating an incredible community of support and friendship. Thank you all soooooo much.

We’re excited to announce that artist Moya Mckenna will be teaching FOUNDATION PAINTING 1 in Term 3!  Learn more about Moya and her arts practice HERE.

WE ARE MOVING!!

Unfortunately our beloved studio has been sold which means we have to move BUT… we have found a fantastic space just down the road!  We’re so excited to build a bigger and better teaching studio for you all!

We have a vision of The Art Room that includes further supporting our students and opening up our programs to the wider public through free art talks and workshops, and panel discussions where you can hear top Melbourne artists discuss their practices and careers.  We want to provide large drawing events where professional artists and art students will be able to undertake life-drawing unlike anything previously offered in Melbourne.

Currently the building is just an empty shell and over the next few months we’ll be transforming it into a fabulous, large light-filled studio situated between Yaraville, Seddon and Footscray.  This will allow us to nearly double our teaching space, provide free parking and hugely improve our facilities.  The new building will enable us to create more exciting art experiences, be more inventive in our classes, and employ more wonderful teachers and life models.  While not being used as a teaching space it will also open up the opportunity to become a pop up theater and performance space and venue for exhibitions!  We will be open to all ideas!

To bring our vision to life we need your help.  We’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign to help us cover some of the costs of moving and rebuilding.  There are lots of fantastic rewards on offer including limited edition prints by our teachers, life drawing extravaganzas and Corporate Sponsorship for businesses.  Please join our campaign and share our story with your friends by 9pm July 22nd.  A HUGE thank you to everyone that has supported our campaign so far!! x
