I am an artist who has taught painting and drawing since 1981 at all major art institutions in NSW. Since graduating from the South Australian School of Arts in 1974 I have exhibited my work in many reputable galleries including Ray Hughes , Coventry and Gary Anderson Galleries. My work is represented in the Australian National Gallery in Canberra and various private collections.
In class I cover a wide range of genres- still life , portraiture and abstraction - equipping students (on all levels ) with some interesting and useful paint handling techniques in both oils and acrylics. In drawing we explore line and tone, light and shadow effects to describe contour, volume and atmosphere.
I aim to make every class vital and informative and also have some fun along the way! and imbue each student with a sense of history and worth during the creative process.

What Penny's students have to say: "Penny Harkness has been the most inspirational, supportive and encouraging teacher I have ever had. I'm sad not to enjoy my last lesson with my new friends, but look forward to continuing next term."
