Join master-painter Elizabeth Marruffo as she guides you through the traditional painting techniques she learnt while studying in Florence. From preparing compositions and transferring images, to working with watercolour and ink, this eight week course provides students with a deep understanding of the way a traditional artist worked.

This term we will be studying pen and ink techniques as well as watercolour techniques while we study the famous botanical illustrations of the scientist and artist Maria Merian. She was famous for documenting the metamorphosis of insects at a time when those around her believed insects emerged from the mud.

Her luminous and detailed studies of plants, flowers, bugs and butterflies will be looked at in detail as we work on our own line studies, tonal studies and finally a finished copy of one of her works.

Students should expect to develop their mastery of watercolour processes and techniques as well as practice pen and ink illustration techniques.

Our small class size of only 8, means that each student will get the feedback and attention they need in order to achieve their best outcome.

Saturday midday session runs at 11.30am – 1.00pm from the 23rd of July until the 17th of September

This course is recommended for ages 10+

NOTE: There will be a break on the weekend of the 6th of August for the Perth Comic Arts Festival. Elizabeth and Campbell are co-founders of this free, annual Festival and we strongly encourage all students to attend over the weekend.
