Develop your skills and increase your confidence in acrylic painting by experimenting with materials, equipment and techniques.
Suitable for all levels including beginners.
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.
Things you need
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. Bring the paints and brushes you already have, Denise will provide all materials for the first three weeks to get you started.
