Programme Overview

From the absolute beginner to the more seasoned painter; from those who wish to paint directly from life to those who wish to take on the challenges of abstract still life painting, this course aims to lay a foundation in the basics of painting with acrylic and to explore, experiment and play with the possibilities within the medium. If you’re dusting off your old brushes, just recapping or stepping out for the first time with acrylic paint, we’ll be covering the preparation of painting surfaces (canvas stretching etc.), tonal studies, the mixing of colour, indirect painting, glazing, and experimental mark-making. This course will cater to the individual needs of all students. Working with individual strengths as well as weaknesses, the course is designed to improve and polish your painting technique.
