Acrylic Painting - Beginners

Learn the basics of Acrylic Painting with the aim of creating your very own artwork such as flowers, seascapes or modern textured abstract designs. Classes specialise in Acrylic Painting Techniques, 3D realism, Texture, Colour and Composition for both traditional and contemporary designs of your own choice.

Students are guided through a series of painting exercises, beginning with colour mixing and understanding the colour wheel. All the basics are covered, preparing painting surfaces, the use of different tools and cleaning up after painting. We will cover still-life and abstract subjects, sketching before a painting, how to paint from photographs and understanding composition and perspective. The tutor will take you through some paintings using step-by-step exercises after which you will be encouraged to develop your own style.

No painting experience needed for these basic classes as you will start from scratch to learn and create.
