TUKU 24 - Paint Like the Masters

Sunday 7th April 2024

This fun, one day painting workshop will have you walking out with a finished work of art – created
from scratch, by you, using age-old traditional painting techniques.

You’ll begin by stretching your own canvas over a supplied frame to create a traditional painting surface. The canvas will then be primed and prepped, ready for painting. You’ll then learn how to create a quick tonal still-life study using acrylics. This will then be glazed in oils for those wanting to add a little colour.

You’ll leave with not only a finished work of art, but also an understanding of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of painting, including ‘cheat’ solutions provided by Larisse, who uses these techniques in her painting practice daily. Te reo Maori use is welcomed (Larisse is learning te reo Maori but is not yet fluent).

*Course materials include frame, canvas, staple guns, staples, gesso primer, acrylic paints, oil paints and brushes. This gives you the opportunity to try something new without needing to purchase supplies.

Please bring your own lunch.
