50 high definition images: inspirational photographs of Architectural based content for the students to reference for their studies. A downloadable file to enable you to print off as many copies and as many times as you require to support the students visual selection process. (N.B. – Please be aware that Ian Murphy always recommends that students on a recognised Art Program should always take ownership of their personal ideas and their first hand references. These images are supplied to help those individuals who may struggle
to gain their own starting points and need support to take a major part in an exciting and rewarding workshop program).
Complete access for every student and teacher to the extensive library of Ian Murphy Art Tutorials: This 12-month facility will again give you complete individual control of all the content, which can be used directly as a starting point to a classroom based Art lesson, and/or individual study, accessible on any internet ready device at your convenience. These art films cover a large amount of the exciting mixed media approaches that Ian Murphy uses in his studio paintings – techniques and methods which, due to their complexity, and extensive drying times between layers, are so difficult to demonstrate in a school environment.
