A Taste of Acrylics for Absolute Beginners

Saturday, 20 November, 2021 - 10:00 to 16:00

Acrylics are seen as an attractive and easy medium for the amateur painter. However, Kate firmly believes that you still need a good foundation course into the basic essentials and skills required to use this diverse medium to its limits ..whilst still having fun of course!

  • The workshop will initially concentrate on materials and medium usage, not forgetting brush and palette knife technique.  We will move swiftly on to practical exercises to help you learn quickly and effectively the skills you need to advance to a painting.

  • These skills are also transferable to those interested in progressing into oil paint in the future.

These introductory days can be followed up with further sessions to help you gain confidence and build on the skills you have learnt and apply your new skills to a wealth of subject matter.

Cost £95.  Including all materials and refreshments.  Bring a packed lunch.
