What we're about

Do you love painting nature and drawing the figure? Do you doodle in the middle of the night? Do you carry a colour wheel and a view catcher in your back pocket? You're one of us! We speak two languages - art and gibberish. Come paint with us!

At Swinton's we offer workshops in everything art, but this Meetup group is mainly for Plein Air painters. Painting outside can make you a better artist. You don’t have to be a great outdoor painter to enjoy Plein Air painting. Just enjoy the process and you will get better at painting indoors. Beginner or advanced artists welcome.

PRICE $135+gst BIT ABOUT FIGURE DRAWING: Figure drawing has been the standard measurement of an artist's skills for hundreds of years. It is as important today as ever. It teaches good observation and accurate sketching. The best way to learn how to draw anything is by observing and drawing human beings. If you know how to render the figure well, your skills at creating nonfigurative and even abstract art will be stronger. Life drawing teaches accuracy of observation and leads to the ability to draw or paint any subject. The more you draw the figure the more you will develop the ability to communicate movement and personality. By using simple lines an artist should be able to give a figure a real sense of life and individuality. You will learn to draw three dimensionally and to make the figures feel like they exist in a real world.
