What is Painting for Pleasure at Balwyn Community Centre?

Painting for Pleasure with Gordon is a no-pressure class that let’s you get lost in art!

When was the last time you sat down, brush in hand and paint at the ready, and really had a go at painting? If you’re like most of us, it was way back in year 9 art class. A distant memory, it’s easy to forget the pleasure of painting – that satisfying feeling of creating something. We think it’s time you gave it another go!

Painting for Pleasure with Gordon lets you explore your thoughts and express yourself. Gordon will work with you one-on-one, teaching you proper painting techniques and helping to improve your skills.

What to expect?

Class tutor, Gordon guides his students in a relaxed and friendly environment. You can work at your own pace and take as much time as you need to finish each art piece. Diversity in style and subject is encouraged and a wide range of mediums are used in class, to include watercolour, oil and acrylic paints. As you become more familiar with the process, you may choose to change mediums to suit your preference or a particular project.

Tuition in technique is on an individual basis. Gordon works one-on-one with each student, answering any questions and helping to overcome problems. Over the course of the term you’ll meet like-minded others and complete work you’re proud to take home. But most importantly, you’ll find pleasure in painting!

Who’s this course for? 

Painting for Pleasure is suitable for people with all levels of experience. Beginners are welcome, those just starting in any given medium, as well as the more experienced artist who may want to extend their ability.
