About the subject:

In this comprehensive painting methods subject, students gain a thorough understanding of painting techniques and methods. Emphasis is placed on the nature of observation and the way it is utilised in painting. Drawing on a wide range of contemporary and historical approaches, students gain a theoretical understanding of painting and develop a critical awareness of individual skill and proficiency.

Methods and techniques covered include handling of oil paints, use of opaque and transparent pigments, colour mixing and selection, and preparation of painting surfaces such as canvas. Students also explore various approaches to paint application including blending, glazing, scumbling, wet in wet, encaustic (wax) and impasto.

Single unit enrolment is welcome. Study units can be completed in any order. There are no prerequisites. Class sessions are once a week. A materials list will be given to students before they start. Completion of all three study units: Painting Methods A , Painting Methods  W, and Painting Methods  S will complete the painting methods requirement of the Diploma of Visual Arts.
