Painting with Acrylics

Acrylics are a beautiful way to create art as they are easy to use and manage due to their quick dry. During my classes we will experience different ways to start and develop an artwork. Starting on a white canvas could be daunting. For every new work I give you a starting point, a drive. My classes have a unique approach as I have tailored them myself through years of experience. Let art be your everyday thought, let my class be your weekly excitement. Seeing you inspired and bringing home your very own art is for me part of my weekly inspiration/excitement. Join a happy driven art class, be one of my new “painting with acrylics” art students.

About the Tutor:

'I have studied visual art, I have approached art through textiles but also I have attended numerous masterclasses with famous local and European artists. Those diverse ways to approach art have taught me to think outside the box. Painting for me is a feeling that’s beautiful that I cannot help it to want to share it.' Valerie
