Acrylics with a Difference

This class is an experience in how to produce an artwork through studying/interpreting a song. You will need to bring along some sand/ dirt/ fabric/ tissues/ newspaper/ magazines... that we will use for the mixed media part. We then will learn how to compose and paint your artwork. Experimental art is for me a beautiful and therapeutic way for you to release your inspiration and energy. Come along and enjoy a different way to approach painting. Get out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself and get closer on how to find your own style of painting.

About the Tutor:

‘I have studied visual art, I have approached art through textiles studies but also I have attend numerous masterclasses and short courses with famous local and European artists (I am French). Those diverse ways to approach art have taught me to think outside the square. Painting for me is a beautiful feeling that I cannot help it to want to share it.’ Valerie
