About tutor/workshops




All Workshops

NZ Art Classes & Workshops held just past Manukau City, south of Auckland City.   Set up to assist and impart knowledge to those who are interested in learning oil painting, colour mixing  and the latest art worldwide - resin painting or acrylic pour/fluid painting.  With today's busy, hectic and rushing lifestyle, we all need to take time out. 

A b o u t - tutor

J e n n i f e r  C r u d e n .  Being a full-time artist, painting in both oils and resin.  Having taught oil painting classes for many years, loving passing on information learned over the years to all who attend workshops.  Being told many times, attendees have learned more in these classes than by attending many workshops/term classes by others.   Jennifer's studio oils are mostly on a larger scale, being mainly now of mountain and lake scenes, or undertaking artwork painted whilst on location - 'en plein air'.   

Another love is that of painting with resin, producing bright, contemporary style modern artwork. These unique pieces are ideally suited to the modern homes of today. Loving resin, particularly the huge challenge of this medium, never quite knowing the end result this may provide.  Sales of paintings are via galleries. Commissions accepted.
