The Art of Using Glazes – M3 with Judith Kittel

This is a 6 week course.

Judith Kittel combines her passion for art and teaching with her heart for people. She has been teaching for 26 years and has taught art classes & workshops in Adelaide as well as throughout South Australia, Interstate & New Zealand & over the years she has had the privilege to demonstrate art and painting techniques at art shows, art groups, expos & craft fairs. Judith has won a number of awards over the years & is a published artist, having had her profile and numerous artworks published in the Folk & Decorative Artist Magazine during her days before making a foray into Fine Art.

Course Description
Join with Judith to get creative learning some special techniques using Acrylics and doing 2 very different paintings using the techniques. We will cover a variety of ways of using glazes creatively, what colours are best to use and we’ll complete 2 quite different artworks using the techniques covered so you’ll learn how to do Judith’s Impressionist Messy Dabby roses and a Freehand Treescape using the techniques!

There’s lots to learn & not just about glazing ….. we’ll cover useful brush techniques, using gesso creatively & more. Then you’ll most likely be inspired to think up other ways to put the techniques into practice by getting even more creative as you go forward!
For ALL levels of experience
