The Tuesday night Fundamentals course operates in a friendly, supportive learning and teaching environment where each term builds upon the knowledge and skills encountered in previous terms.
While exploring basic art media, methods and techniques of drawing and painting, we’ll investigate a range of ideas, processes, major themes in art and the language of art. These include mixing colour; exploring the proportions and tonal values in portrait drawing and the human form; design and composition structures in still life and landscape painting; the use of space in picture making, and investigating mixed media in simple printmaking processes and collage.
Following introductory discussions of art concepts with visual examples from art history and other sources, exercises will be demonstrated, explained and taught. These include learning to see through the close observation of simple objects and forms, thinking about how to interpret images from the outside world as well as creating new images from the inner worlds of the imagination.
Drawing from the figure is an excellent way to develop skills in art. In the Figurative Studies section of the course, we’ll employ a model, unclothed in the studio. The model fee is included in the course price.
Tuesday Fundamentals Kate Scott – A 10-week course starting 11 October 2022
Kathryn (Kate) Scott maintains a continuing art practice in which she explores drawing through a variety of media including charcoal, contes, graphite pencils, reed pen & ink, texta and oil pastels. Her picture-making in paint covers a range of media including acrylic, oils and mixed media, where themes explore the portrait, landscape, still life, gardens, the built environment and the human form. Currently, Kate’s work combines an interest in expression, figuration and abstraction.
She has taught art in Canberra schools and colleges for over 30 years and in 1996 was awarded a Master of Letters in Art History and Curatorship from the ANU. Exploring new experiences in this vast land provides stimulating source material for artwork, such as flight trips over Central Australia and Lake Eyre, SA (2012) and the West MacDonnell NP, NT (2013). Kate attended art residencies in Ruby Gap, NT (2013), West Kimberley and the Pilbara, WA (2019) and Kangaroo Island, SA (2022).
Kate has had two solo exhibitions, has participated in multiple group exhibitions and in recent years has attended many workshops run by local and visiting artists at the Canberra Art Workshop. She is convenor of the CAW Thursday night Portrait Art Group and attends a weekly Life Drawing Art Group.
