Painting Atelier


Introduction to Painting: Acrylic

This course is suitable for participants who have never painted before or are returning to painting.

You will learn how to create a painting, from choosing a canvas through to the finishing.

In the first two weeks of the course, adults learn to see colour, shape and tone, paint applications and to relate these elements together in compositions.  We then move onto painting your inspiration whether that is an image/drawing with guidance.  Please bring inspirational images/drawings to the first class to discuss.

This course aims to nurture self-confidence and enjoyment of painting in a stimulating, fun and relaxing environment.

Our painting class is small to ensure time is given to answer any specific question you might have as well as ongoing support and encouragement. The classes are friendly and completely non-judgemental, so please don't worry if you are new to art.

Studio supplies: easels, pencils, paper and some brushes.  Materials list will be provided on booking.
