Covid Classes

Life in the time of Covid...

Due to the unforeseen pandemic, HipCat has been shut up of late for renovations (a great opportunity really)... I have been delivering drawing and painting classes online to some degree. 

Restrictions are being relaxed but I'm taking the step of only doing 1:1 classes and offering online drawing and painting classes (1:2 may be possible if they live in the same house as you i.e. Parent/child partners etc).

1:1 classes are only available to those who are not in stage 4 lockdown and where it is legally permissible to do so.

Masks and distancing are enforced (No mask, no access for the duration of the pandemic however long that lasts regardless of the legalities).

Latest classes and changes...

  • 1:1 classes are $350 (this is the same fee as normal face to face group classes but now you have the added bonus of being the centre of attention).i 
  • Drawing and or painting classes which are online are being reduced in price as it is not an ideal way to teach but it does work nicely $250 for ten classes and the classes are being reduced to 2 hrs (They were 2.5 hrs).

Drawing
 

COVID UPDATE: Drawing and Painting classes are being held online. A discount has been applied to the 10 classes package. Please see the Covid class details in the drawing tab. 

Time and dates will be negotiated with individuals... Clearly running term to term is no longer feasible as even schools are not able to do that at the moment. 

The hardest part of learning to draw is being brave enough to believe that you can do it.

This is a primer course in drawing that is suitable for beginners and experts in a range of mediums and materials. This course is as much about building your confidence as it is imparting techniques that allow you to render what you see confidently onto a flat plane. 

Starting with still life compositions, we will explore the methods, materials and composition rules for creating compelling imagery for fine-art and illustration.

Artist Book Classes

An introduction to the artist book. 

As this is a course for the dedicated and passionate please contact me directly if you need to organise different dates and times from those specified on the bookings system. I'm running this on demand as a series of classes (as it is not possible to complete in a single day). 

Create your own story, mock it up as a book, design and create the illustrations, layout the pages, print and bind your own artist book. This course will show you how to create, illustrate and print your own artist book. 

Beginning with a mockup of your book project, we will look at the stages of artist book creation with an overview of costing papers, choices of traditional materials for illustration (lino, wood engraving, etching), we will also cover hand-setting text for your book. 

For those after a more immediate result check out the zine production workshop which can be completed in a single day!
