$430.00 inc. GST

Lecturer: Melanie Brown
Mon 29 Apr – Mon 3 Jun
6.00pm – 9.00pm 
Level – Advanced


This course will give participants the opportunity to develop their painting practice in a supportive and friendly environment. Participants will work independently with guidance from Melanie Brown and Daryl Austin. The emphasis will be on developing participants’ own individual work and concepts, whilst improving technique and studio practice. Participants may choose to work on an uncompleted painting, start a new larger work, or begin a group of studies.

Open Studio – Oil Painting is intended for artists who may struggle with the isolation of working on their own, for recent graduates to get some direction with their work, and for those who simply wish to advance their painting practice. It is a valuable chance for like-minded artists to learn from, support and encourage each other, under the direction of an experienced painter and lecturer.

Previous painting experience is essential (suitable for practicing artists and current degree students).


Materials required:
Please bring oil painting materials appropriate to the work you will be making in the Open Studio.
