How do you create an engaging work of art that sparks an emotional response?

What is it that really captivates the viewer? It's an incredibly congested and hectic cyberspace we live in these days …how do we go about getting our work noticed? 

As humans we are hard wired to both tell and listen to stories. When we connect with our own stories and express them through our painting we are inviting others into our world. When people know your story they will not only trust you but they will buy your art. 

In this course you will learn how to engage the viewer through composition, colour and texture, and you will discover how to loosen up and simplify your painting. How do entry and exit points work? Find out how to add that “wow factor” which can turn a good painting into a great one! There will be an emphasis on oil and acrylic but all mediums are welcome.

Richard is a contemporary landscape painter and former postman who currently exhibits in Australia and Europe, and Kerrie is a teacher with over 30 years experience. You will get their combined expertise and loads of ideas on how to develop your own unique style. With a blend of lively group discussion and individual tuition you will come away from this course bristling with creative energy and new ideas!

    Workshops Policies : Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

    Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable. What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person.

    **If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds**

    Emergency Cancellations : In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.

    If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to and you will be put on a waiting list.
