Art Class for Adults
Why should kids have all the fun…
Do you want a creative outlet and some time out for yourself? Are you looking for something fun and educational yet relaxing?
Since 2005 Kylie Farrelly has run Create-A-Canvas classes for adults who have always wanted to paint or to refresh their skills.
Once a month, on a Sunday afternoon, Kylie holds paintings sessions for beginner and novice painters at her Home Studio, North Brisbane. If you have a group of 4 or more who would like to try their hand at painting, or want to get together to celebrate a birthday or work professional development session, Kylie is happy to work with you to find a suitable date other than a Sunday date already set.
About the Class:
Classes start at 1.30pm with a quick discussion about types of paint, canvases, brushes and other basic knowledge to get you started in your painting journey. She will then have a personal discussion with each class participant about his or her intended painting idea. Kylie talks to everyone in the class individually about the image they have chosen and goes through some techniques that suit their projects.
During the class you will experiment with a variety of techniques and medium. It is also a wonderful forum to learn from each other.
The class finishes at 5.30pm. The 4-hour time frame should be enough to complete your canvas and if not, the classes run again on a monthly basis.
A selection of hot drinks and afternoon tea is provided.
