Introduction to Drawing & Painting


Sorry This Class Is Full – A Waiting List Is Available Though

With plenty of support, reference and humour, students will be shown concise and exciting methods to make drawings and paintings. Evan believes that, like a good meal, some simple, fresh ingredients put together with insight and affection can produce a feast for the eyes. Students will build confidence by developing simple, individual drawing techniques from direct observation outdoors, before introducing colour for the classroom-based painting. You will be encouraged to use the exploratory nature of drawing to create paintings informed by the environment of the area and our class experience. This class will enable beginners and reinvigorate those with experience.


Evan was born in 1965 in Auckland, where he currently lives and works. Raised in a family of artists, he is a painter who is well respected for his in-depth technical knowledge. He graduated MFA (1st Class Honours) from Elam School of Fine Arts, and has a proven exhibition and award history, including the 2011 Molly Morpeth Canaday Award and 2003 Becroft Premier Award, with works in significant collections, such as the Wallace Art Trust.
