Painting lessons and workshops

I am available for one-on-one or small group painting lessons at a temporary studio in the Melbourne CBD, or I can come to your school, art society or painting group for a workshop or demonstration.  I have taught visual art at tertiary level, and I have hosted many workshops and masterclasses.  I'll take you through my process step by step, and give you some good insights into colour mixing, oil painting materials and preparing surfaces.  


Private (or very small group) Painting Lessons

I'll set you up on an easel next to mine and we'll tackle a project (of my choosing, or yours) together.  This is a great way to gather loads of new skills and techniques in just one or two sessions.  Or, join up with a friend or two to reduce the cost.  

Price:  $150 an hour for a private lesson, including all materials.  (Minimum two hour lesson, unless negotiated differently.)  A discount is available if you bring your own materials.  $50 extra per person per hour.

Demonstrations and workshops in Melbourne 

I am available to come to your school or art group to do a demonstration, artist talk or workshop in oil painting and/or colour theory.  I am based in Melbourne until mid November 2022. 

Price:  Depends on the size and scale of the workshop, but allow for around $300 for a talk, lesson or demonstration to $900 for a full day workshop.

Plein air excursions 

Let me know if you would like to join up with me for a painting session outside, just for fun!  I'll show you my plein air painting kit and give you a few tips if you want them, but this is pretty much a chance for us to enjoy painting together in Melbourne or surrounding areas.

Price:  Probably nothing!  I'm happy to catch up to meet new people and get to know the area!

Mentoring and consulting

I am available to discuss your career and your art practice and give you some advice, feedback and encouragement.  I have a background in journalism, arts writing, arts marketing, management and teaching, which have helped me along with my career, and might be useful to you, too.

Price:  $80 an hour, (face-to-face or via Zoom)
