Acrylic painting level 1: April 2022

“Everything I needed to know to get going at home.”

Polly K

For various reasons this was an unusually small group of students. However, we have been used to working with smaller groups during the pandemic and the weekend was very successful. The students were new to painting and to acrylic paints so this was the ideal course for them. It begins with the very basic aspects of using acrylic paints then builds learners skills and confidence throughout the weekend. They learned about the properties of acrylics and experimented with technique and colour before completing various tasks. The resulting outcomes were effectively painted still-life compositions. The students were delighted and very keen to continue painting with acrylics. Read further to find out what the students thought of their experience.

“A fun day and actually very tiring. [My course highlight was] how to work with acrylic paint and just getting on with it and experimenting. Happy to book on a few more to gain different experiences and just confidence.”
