Imagine having your own private landscape artist painting instructor while you are staying at any property within 150km of Bridgetown.

Designed with clients in mind, Michael will provide a landscape art class with a difference. Using oil paint you will learn technique, hints and tips that enables you to create your own art piece.

Michael Hodgkins is a landscape artist and oil painting teacher and Photographer from Perth, Western Australia. As well as painting full time he crafts private art classes to suit your skill level.

Painting began for Michael as a child, being taught by his professional landscape artist father, George Hodgkins. Michael augmented this early training with tertiary studies in contemporary art and design. He has also used extensive self education to research and learn the properties and uses of traditional fine art painting materials, pigments & binders.

He works primarily in oils but has applied his hand at different times to Acrylic, Watercolour, Gouache and Pastel.  Michael has taught University extension courses, Landscape technique workshops and landscape oil painting classes. Michael’s work has been purchased by collectors from around the world, particularly those from Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. When not painting, Michael indulges his parallel interest in landscape photography.

Michael is available for half day private workshops and group classes.
