A fun 3 days full of the different techniques of acrylic painting. Each day will be run by a different artist.
Using seascapes, landscapes and still life subjects the artist can be direct, technical in drawing or expressive in how they can say what they feel about the subject they are portraying. Tutors will demonstrate all the techniques and will always be on hand to help in the studio and side by side paint with you so you can see the painting progress.
A combination of painting surfaces and styles will be explored. Each day there is a change of subject and artist to challenge you and inspire you to paint with expression and confidence.
All materials are provided for.
