Painting Class 31st March

Acrylics-on-Silver-Leaf-by-Sjoukje-TarboxToday’s class was small, warm and wonderful! The class was all about trying out silver and gold leaf. We explored applying the leaf and glazing over it with acrylics. It’s a very tricky process using gold and silver leaf because it’s only a few microns thick and very, very fragile. Sjoukje’s work, shown here, shows the effect we achieve with silver leaf covering the whole surface of the canvas. The leaf is then washed over with acrylic glazes which gives the picture it’s unique tint. The trees were also painted in acrylics.

Sticky: New Pet Portraits Section

Pet Portrait of Yippee - Pam's Dog

We all love our pet friends and companions so I decided to give them their own page in the main menu. The first work I have included is of Yippee, my dear friend Pam’s dog in Taipei. Pet Portraits are now included in the site main menu (as ‘Pets’). If you would like to learn to paint and draw your pets, then send me a message and join one of my classes. We love meeting new people and you will be most welcome.  To get to the form, just click through!

Welcome To Art Classes with Hettie Rowley in Perth

Art Classes Perth New Site

Thanks ever so much for finding and visiting me here on my new site for Art Classes Perth, which I’ve set up for three main purposes:

  • To keep my students and other interested people informed about the classes I hold in Perth
  • To post art created by me and by my students
  • To create a fun place for people interested in art to have a chat about what’s going on from day to day

I’ll be adding a form for those who wish to sign up or make other inquiries about attending classes, buying art and so on, and in the meantime, my other site at MagickMirrors is still on the web for those interested. All news and information about my classes will be moved to this site from August 30th 2013.

Develop Your Talent For Drawing And Painting In Perth

I have been asked specifically about:

  • Online Courses
  • Drawing Classes 
  • Painting Classes
  • Life Drawing Sessions

I do all of the above classes except for online art classes, which I cannot cover. However, there are some good courses at TAFE (TAFE stands for Training and Further Education. TAFE is Australia’s largest provider of vocational education and training.) So you can attend TAFE courses for a formal qualification and still attend my classes and Life Drawing Sessions if you so wish!
