This class is suitable for beginners or intermediate painters. We will focus on the fundamentals of colour theory, the study of light and shadow, composition, visual perspective, brushwork and paint handling and application, as it pertains to acrylic medium. You will get to experience and experiment with the various tools you can use to spread the rich tones of acrylic paint, and the various mediums it can be used on!

You’ll get to develop creative and perceptual skills, as we explore the varied subject matter. With plenty of demonstrations and individual attention, students will be encouraged to work at their own pace. This class includes positive and supportive critique during each session.
