A 6 week course focusing on skills, loosening up and exploring the acrylic medium. Max 5-6 people.
6 weeks, WEDNESDAY 9.30am-12.30pm
These art classes explore more deeply how to apply your “unique self” to your paintings. They are for the absolute beginner through to the more experienced. During the 6 week course you will learn the basics in composition, colour, value, line, shape and texture as well as techniques to help you loosen up, find your unique painting voice and how to paint with more freedom. The classes will focus mainly on acrylic applications with some practice in mixed media such as oil and wax pastels and graphite.
- These classes will have a rotating theme for each class block such as landscape, botanical, self expression, beach scapes etc. These themes can be flexible and adapted to suit the needs of each class. Sometimes we completely scrap the theme!
