Stephen Mann's art class at Curl Curl on the Northern beaches focused on the subject matter of water, rocks, waves, swimming pool, headland and people. The medium was in oils (or acrylic for those who preferred) using brush and pallet knife. It was a glorious day rendering the colours of the sky and water vivid shades of blue.

Stephen began the class by using the white board to sketch out and explain the composition, balance and anatomy of the painting. Stephen then asked the children to mix mauve and white to create a lighter mauve colour and this was used to paint an outline on the canvas. One student asked why the mauve should be used. Stephen mentioned that this was because mauve mixes with every other colour. Stephen explained step by step how to do the sky, clouds, rocks, beach, water and people. The children used a range of paint brush sizes and learnt how to use complimentary colours and successfully create shadows in the correct direction depending on the source of the light.
The children were encouraged to ask questions and were invited to gather around Stephen's canvas to learn particular techniques.
The end results were quite amazing as you can see. Every child left with a beautiful, completed canvas and extremely proud parents.
Yours in Painting!
