Unique Acrylic Art Lessons St George & Sutherland Community College

Unique Acrylic Art Lessons

This class is suitable for any art level. Complete novices are welcome as well as those with some art experience. These weekly 2 hours workshops are the place to learn new skills, brush up on old ones, try new materials and approaches, and experiment and explore in a friendly, supportive environment. We will experience every lesson in a different style: from landscapes to experimental art via cubism, figurative painting, and more. I am an experienced art teacher who utilises an alternative approach whilst offering total support and guidance. Each week I aim to provide you something exciting to create that is fun, interesting, or challenging depending on your expectations. Come and feel inspired with me!
