Learn how to draw and how to paint at this fun art class in Sydney and take your beautiful artworks home with you!

If you’re a budding artist wanting to take your drawing or painting skills to the next level or just a beginner wanting to learn some tips and tricks when it comes to art, then this class is for you! In the small, fully-equipped combined drawing and painting studio, you will learn and practise basic skills under the guidance of an experienced artist. 

Throughout the workshop, you will be supported in your own individual project, through addressing the form, technique and content of your work. There will also be optional projects for you to undertake which are designed to help you progress and to challenge patterns.

At the end of the session, you will take home the pieces you have worked on, as well as the skills and feedback to apply to your art. This painting workshop and drawing course will inspire, motivate and challenge you to do greater work!

Please note: You will need to bring your own drawing and painting materials. See the list below.


About the workshop space

Studio Workshops are small groups, which allow for plenty of individual attention from the tutor. They are ideal for inspiring you and further developing your skills and art techniques. You’ll also benefit from meeting other artists and hobbyists and they will inspire, motivate and challenge you to do greater work. Use the opportunity to exchange ideas, tips and knowledge.


About the drawing and painting studio

Our studio is well lit, fully equipped and located in Rozelle. This studio is designed to engage and support the local community in their drawing and painting practice. There is free tea and coffee for students, parking onsite and it is easily accessible by public transport.

Qualifications

    • Master of Arts (Painting) (with distinction for thesis), Royal College of Art, London
    • Bachelor of Arts (Painting), first class, Chelsea School of Art, London
    • Foundation course in Fine Art, Camberwell School of Art, London
    • Portfolio Course, The City Literary Institute, London

Experience

Sally has amassed more than 15 years experience in adult art education. Between 1997 and 2002, she delivered courses in painting, drawing and collage at The Mary Ward Centre in London. It was a great foundation for her current role at SCC, where she has tutored since 2008. Sally has also worked as an ArtEst Art School painting and drawing tutor.

Achievements

Sally’s achievements began stacking up shortly after she graduated in 1993, when she was part of the artist-run studio/exhibition space ‘Notcut’ in Southwark, London. That same year, Sally was awarded an Erasmus scholarship to Berlin, and she is also the recipient of a prestigious scholarship to the Royal College of Art Studio, at Cite des Arts in Paris. Since then, Sally has enjoyed numerous public and private commissions from across the United Kingdom and the United States, and has exhibited her artwork in Britain and Australia. A good number of her students have gone on to full or part-time art education, and/or become successful exhibiting artists.

Teaching Style

In the classroom, Sally’s students can expect one-to-one tuition as well as group learning opportunities, all supported by excellent visual resources and learning materials. Sally encourages students to interpret given projects in an individual way. Her teaching style is informed but non-prescriptive, and is underpinned by critical thinking objectives. She places a strong emphasis on practical experience as well as knowledge acquisition.

She aims to help students of whatever level to find their way into their painting practice in such a way that they will eventually be able to assess their own work and feel confident to take on more complex projects both in class and independently.

Sally’s lessons are biased towards figurative/representational painting, which isn’t a feature of her own work but which she feels is an important foundation from which students can progress.

Something Unique

In 1987, Sally lived in Ankara, Turkey, where she painted and drew constantly. This experience contributed to her desire to become an artist - whose sensibilities would later be shaped by her experience as a student of art in 90s London.

Sally’s most senior student began painting in her late eighties, and Sally helped her curate her first solo show – at the fantastic age of 93!

And something else a little different about Sally (not to mention handy for an artist): She is ambidextrous.
