DESCRIPTION: Copying master paintings has long been considered one of the best ways to learn drawing and painting. Throughout history, this practice has helped artists to build visual memory, gain insight about the painter’s intention and understand the work within a historical context. Edgar Degas, a strong proponent of this method, told Beth Morisot, “The study of nature [is] more worthwhile to learn to draw after Holbein.” The class begins with lessons on drawing and a discussion of possible images that students might wish to copy. After approval from the instructor, students will paint from prints or digital images of master work (to be provided by the student). The course focuses on analysing composition, paint handling techniques and procedures. This class is limited to twelve students. Open to all levels.

ABOUT THE TUTOR: Krisstie has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Queensland College of Art back when folios were still part of the entrance examination, and a Master of Teaching (Secondary) degree. She has taught painting for over 20 years in short courses at TAFE and when she had her own business in Brisbane. Krisstie has continued to pursue her professional development by attending workshops tutored by renowned national and international artists such as Maureen Hansen; Fu Hong; Lyn Diefenbach; Paul McDonald Smith; Clinton T. Hobart (USA); and Clayton J. Beck iii (USA).
