Drawing/ Mixed Media - Manwel Cassar
Manwel's art works on different levels. As representation, subject matter is realism rendered unphotographically in unnaturally bright colours. As self expression, his vigorous fauvish-expressionist pictures derived at first hand inspire the viewer to share the experience of the joy of living. His art articulates deep felt appreciation of nature and the human form. He also produces totally abstract works which broods emotionally and cerebrally. Manwel's art contrast with world tragic events and implies a message of "seize the day" - carpe diem - enjoyment and peace.
Manwel studied art widely in colleges and university (multi qualified) and has extensively exhibited solo and in groups in Australia and overseas over many years.
The Art of Painting Oils & Acrylics - VIcki McInnes
I teach in an informal friendly style and move around the group discussing successes and challenges of each student's work. Painting must be enjoyable even though it can also be hard work. I find that painting in a group provides a social connection as well as sharing of ideas and knowledge. You will build the skills and confidence to develop your ideas- drawing and painting at your own pace. Beginners and those with more experience will be guided in the medium of their choice, to find an individual style, and create finished pictures. The fundamental of composition, colour and tone will be taught as they apply to your work. Class tuition covers different techniques in oils and acrylics.
