Jon Lam will be our permanent new tutor – Term 3 onwards
“Teach a child to fish or Give a child a fish”
Most Art classes teach students to paint a picture, usually with a visual reference.
This is a good start until you begin a new painting when the tutor is not present.
Then it becomes more challenging.
Understanding the concept of Design Elements and Principles helps with the design process so that students may achieve a higher rate of success.
