This Acrylic Painting course is ideal for beginners, but suitable for all levels.

We will be exploring the versatility and vibrancy of acrylic paints, applying acrylics in different ways onto different surfaces (e.g. paper, board, canvas) and exploring a variety of techniques such as impasto, brush, rollers, mixed media. The course will also provide an opportunity to create compositions using and experimenting with colour values and colour mixing techniques.

We will work in a variety of themes, for example natural form, interiors, a little bit of still life, a model, perhaps a landscape or even abstract.

You will be encouraged to develop your own individual project




A basic list of materials is recommended to start the course and you may wish to add to these as the course develops.
