Note: New Class start date now on 11 May (not 4 May) as Teacher unable to start on 4 May. A Catch-up class will be arranged.
This course will involve painting and drawing techniques with colourful Acrylic Paint.
Quick drying Acrylic paint is ideal for Night classes and I like to encourage colourful and experimental pathways with modern applications and at the same time show my students practical methods of painting with correct brushwork, colour and application from the beginning of a canvas to the final coat of varnish.
This course is suitable for both beginners to advanced students.
Students should acquire beforehand:
- A basic set of Acrylic Paints with a variety of colours including black and white. Some brands to consider are Reeves and Cromacryl
- Two containers for water
- A paper pallet to mix your paints
- Pain rags
- A set of small, medium and large bristle brushes
- Painting canvases and boards will be available for purchase on the day from the teacher. Alternatively, you may bring your own
All of the above are available from art shops or discount stores.
- All students = $10 payable to teacher to cover general materials and consumables
- Extra $$: The teacher may supply canvas' and paint for students to purchase (at cost) throughout the course.
