Level 3 (General Drawing & Painting)

Level 3 (General Drawing & Painting Classes)

‘It matters not what you paint, it’s how you paint it that counts’ – Max Meldrum

‘Start where you are’ and build on existing skills through an experiential, exploratory, process.  Growth is facilitated through problem solving, the use of limited palettes and practise.  Each term the focus is on a new theme, with some sessions having a set structure and others being free choice.

BONUS: Every 2nd term General Drawing & Painting sessions will include a 2.5 hour Workshop Tutorial with award winning South Australian artist ‘Cat Leonard’ who will share her techniques and methods for mastering painting with acrylics.

Well-known Artists are researched for inspiration, knowledge and examples. Books, websites, slideshows and various other media are used to show different artists’ work and styles. You also receive quality input/history of various artists’ lives, methods and techniques.

Splashout is constantly developing a team of well skilled and qualified tutors who undergo a continual process of developing their own personal art skills as well as expanding their tutoring effectiveness.

Gradually develop your existing knowledge and ability from term to term. Throughout this evolving process, you enjoy plenty of time to simply paint, develop skills, increase confidence and gain more ways to achieve that elusive ‘yes’ !


The first session of the term is obligatory as it is not only introductions but covers an overall detailed briefing of what to expect and how to complete the course.
Attendance at this first session is essential.
Clients who feel they are unable to attend this session are asked to notify us and will be encouraged to undertake a future term where they’re able to commit to full attendance.
