Folk and Decorative Art – Sydney Course

Beginners to advanced skills are catered for in all sessions. Beginners follow a set structured course covering the basics of painting folk art, Bauernmalerei, rustic country style fruit, 3D teddy bears and American decorative art. You will work at your own pace. People with advanced skills can choose from the tutor’s designs or your own to paint a wide range of stylised or realistic projects on wood, furniture, or canvas. Styles may include florals, still-life, seasonal pieces, painting for children, landscapes, or reproducing Art Nouveau and Old Masters using the folk art techniques.

Course Outline

In this course:

  • Beginners learn brush use and care, colour mixing and application (including faux finishes, shading and highlighting, blended backgrounds), how to set up, paint and complete a painting, follow demonstrations, use notes and samples to paint and varnish
  • For advanced or continuing students, the paintings offered for inspiration change each term
  • Everyone receives practical help and guidance with progress

Please note: This is a guide only.

Course Outcome

  • After completing this eight week course, you will have a very good grounding in folk art technique, have produced five works, and feel confident about undertaking more challenging and ambitious works. Advanced or continuing students will grow in painting ability and confidence with each new painting.

What to Bring

  • Please bring an old bath towel.

Prerequisite: Desirable

  • No artistic ability or prior painting experience in any mode is required.
