Acrylic Painting (Returning Students)

Denise Harrison

Develop your skills and increase your confidence in acrylic painting by experimenting with materials, equipment and techniques. The course will cover the formal elements of making a painting through exercises that include, colour, tone and composition. Denise will provide a different subject each day to paint. The groups will be small and informal so that she can spend time tutoring each person. This course is specifically designed for students who have already completed a course with Denise.

You will be encouraged to keep a small sketchbook or journal to note key points and create a collection of mark making during the lessons. This can then be used to note down ideas, make drawings and collect images in between lessons.
