Art Academy East has a strong traditional focus. Skills such as colour mixing and the use of a reduced colour palette, the importance and effective use of tonal values, design and composition, brushwork and paint handling are taught as fundamental building blocks. Experienced painters and makers will find these neglected areas invaluable as they incorporate them into their practice. AAE delivers step by step carefully designed programs of study that can lead to technical excellence. Fine art evolves continually and finding ways to use the traditional skills of the old masters in conjunction with experimental new ideas makes for exciting discoveries. Art Academy East offers intensive tuition designed to meet individual learner's needs and goals.
