Knowledge required
Beginners and intermediates with some knowledge of basic drawing and painting.
What to bring
Since this class is not for absolute beginners, it is assumed that you have all the materials you need to paint. Please bring whatever you own. If the materials, especially the paints, are not of good quality, I can suggest to you what to use. Painting with materials, especially paints and surfaces, usually results in inferior quality. It is also harder to paint and to mix colours using low-quality paints. So if you are not achieving good results, it might be because of your materials and not because you are doing something wrong.

Chris is an artist who lives and works in Sydney, Australia. At the age of six, Chris developed an interest in drawing and at the age of 13, he attended the School of Arts at Palazzo de La Salle in Valletta, Malta.
Vidal's style of work was developed through years of experience in drawing and painting. He considers himself as a contemporary realist with his preferred subject being the landscape. Studying classical arts mainly drawing from life helped him to develop drawing skills and a keen eye for detail. During his studies, he was influenced by the works of the great masters. He is also influenced by the American landscape painters of the Hudson River School and by the Australian impressionists of the Heidelberg movement.
Chris is also a tutor and teaches drawing and painting to adults at various locations around Sydney. He emphasises the importance of drawing as the foundation onto which you can build up a solid skill in painting as you progress.
Having a solid background in science he gives importance to the quality of materials used to create artwork as well as to the importance of understanding why to use a particular technique in the painting process.
Ultimately the aim of the teaching classes is to guide you and help you develop a skill in a way that you will be able to draw and paint without any assistance and to also be your own critique.
