Adult Education

Our Adult Education programme is run by teachers and facilitators independent of the Peter Clarke Art Centre.

The teachers/facilitators rent the rooms from the Art Centre and we accept their application to run courses from this venue, provided that the courses fit into a broad Arts category.

Some courses are experimental because we like to give new teachers/facilitators a chance to add variety to our courses.

Please note the following applies to participants in this programme:

  • All photocopies are R1.00 per page (A4)
  • Your course teacher/facilitator is responsible for providing refreshments during courses.
  • Please do not use the tea/coffee belonging to PCAC.
  • Please do not use equipment like paper, paints, brushes, scissors, etc. in the classrooms, as these are used by our children and come off the PCAC budget.
  • We unfortunately do not have storage facilities for work in progress.
  • Please recycle all paper and card, but other rubbish is to be thrown into a normal bin.
  • PLEASE LEAVE THE CLASSROOM AS YOU FOUND IT.

We hope you will benefit from the courses offered by our Adult Education programmes.

Please view the workshops available and contact the course organiser to secure your place.

Art and Design Identity

Ilhaam Behardien

The Susbus Art and Design Studio is a space where ‘who you are’ counts as much as ‘what you know’. So ‘who you are’ is what you bring to the specialization (of Art and Design) and ‘what you know’ is what the specialization (of Art and Design) brings to you. Our space is where you are guided to reach and express your own unique authentic voice, and be taught the appropriate techniques and methodologies that are required for you to express yourself. This is achieved through suggested research, collaborative learning and individual consultation, as well as supervised production.

This course is suitable for a student intending to apply for any higher education Art & Design programme or someone who wishes to develop their artist identity for its own sake or towards establishing a career as a professional practicing artist. There is an emphasis on portfolio development and our participating students’ applications for higher education programmes and solo exhibitions tend to be successful.

I ran the Fine Art Department at the Ruth Prowse School of Art for 15 years and have lectured for over 20 years. I have a Master’s degree in the Philosophy of Education, specializing in Higher Education Studies. I’m a practicing artist and own a business that sells artist’s solvents made from oranges. My teaching ethos is ‘to challenge without harm’.

Requirements:

  • Pinterest account – create a board called A&DID followed by your name (e.g. A&DID/Tandi) and collect pins of images (art and non-art) that engage you
  • Visual diary and pen
  • Materials, substrates and formats will be determined during the process

Days & Times: Thursdays, 6 – 9pm
Sessions:  Term 3: 19th July – 27th Sept (10 sessions)
Price: R4300.00

Art of Painting

Vivian Van Der Merwe

Course outline:

  • Tuition is highly individualised, encouraging you to develop your own style in relation to your personal concerns and aspirations as a painter.
  • The goal is that of further developing your visual and artistic skill through engaging with composition, form, colour, general aesthetics and all aspects of painting technique.
  • Each student is guided according to his/her own personal circumstances (how much additional time you have to paint, etc.) so there is no single outcome set for the group as a whole.

About Vivian van der Merwe:

  • Since completing his MFA Degree at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 1984, Vivian held lecturing appointments in Painting and Drawing at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port Elizabeth and then at Stellenbosch University.
  • Having taught Painting to BA Fine Art and Masters students, he also served as an external examiner at various South African art institutions for many years.
  • Past students include Marlene Steyn, Gina Heyer, Claire Menck, Greg Schultz, Oliver Chennells, Sanell Aggenbach, Francois Smit, Liza Grobler, Amy Ellenbogen and many others who have established successful professional careers in the artworld.
  • In 2012 he left full-time academia and decided to teach much more selectively in order to dedicate more time to his own painting.
