Acrylic Painting Techniques for Beginners
Start: 15th March 2013 at 6:00pm
End: 17th March 2013 at 2:00pm
Tutor: Ian Coleman
Versatile Acrylics. Should I use Paper, Canvas or Board? Which Brush? How much paint? These questions and many more will be answered as we explore creative ways to render effects and styles. We’ll try different surfaces, different brushes and get to grips with the core quality of acrylics, the quick drying time. This course is designed for you to have fun and play with foundation techniques and will complement the Improvers course in September, should you wish to try more complicated methods. One-to-one tuition is given at every stage with technical brush skills. Some materials provided, some required.
