Service Description

Painting is easier than you think! Tempted but not sure where to start? Have you been trying things out but not sure how to progress? Look no further. We put this course especially for you. Even if you haven't painted before, or believe that you can't - let us prove you wrong. You will be getting more than just a few generic pointers. Because we understand that each student, painter, and artist requires individual attention, we only ever allow a maximum of 6 students on the course. This, combined with 30 years of experience in teaching and practicing painting, ensures the unparalleled value of the courses we offer. But don't take our word for it, check our stellar google reviews from students all over the world. Why acrylics? They are great for beginners and more affordable than oils or watercolours. Our bespoke Painting in acrylic for Beginners course is a clear step-by-step guide to help you learn and gain confidence in painting in acrylics. You will be surprised by your progress and enjoy the creative process throughout. This course is suitable for beginners as well as those with some painting experience who want to deepen and extend their skills using acrylic paints. Some of what we will cover: How to use appropriate brushes and how to organise your palette. How to use a palette knife for mixing. Basic colour theory and colour mixing skills. Tone and values. Knowledge of different paint surfaces for acrylics. Paint application techniques (fat over lean, impasto, glazing, and more) Wet into wet blending techniques. How to use basic painting mediums. Planning your composition and developing background/foreground relationships.
