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 from your tutor. Please bring inspirational images/drawings to the first class to discuss with your tutor.
This course aims to nurture self-confidence and enjoyment of painting in a stimulating, fun and relaxing environment. You will receive plenty of guidance from the tutor.
By far the most important part - your own artwork. Many students choose to keep work at the studio and create and develop their painting and drawing projects over time. The painting class is small so time is given to answer any specific question you might have. The classes are friendly and completely non-judgemental, so please don't worry if you are new to art.
Studio supplies: palettes, jars, easels, pencils, paper and some brushes. Materials list will be provided on booking.
Please provide on booking what preferred medium you are working in - oil or acrylic.
