The Acrylic Course will take place over three Saturday afternoons and should be suitable for absolute beginners and for those who wish to further their experience of this medium. It would be possible to attend just one or two of the afternoons but it would be more advantageous to attend all the the three sessions. We will begin by observing a photo of the local landscape and going through all the stages of building up a painting layer by layer. At each stage we will pause and discuss together various options and choices before continuing on our journey. We will have the opportunity to learn about pencil sketching, layering, colour contrasts and harmonies and individual style etc. Acrylic paints are very versatile medium, able to create delicate watercolour-like washes or thick impasto texture rather like oil paints. In three sessions we should have a good experience of its possibilities and hopefully a painting to take away! Seahorses Art Studio will supply a canvas board, paints, palette, pencils and brushes but if you wish to bring your own materials please feel free to do so. We will also supply tea/coffee/ biscuits. Space is limited so there will have to be a limited number accepted on a ﬁrst come ﬁrst serve basis. Payment can be made by cheque ( to ‘Seahorses’), a BACS transfer ( we can give our bank details), by credit card ( over the phone) or by cash. If you have any disability or any other special needs please let me know beforehand to make sure we can be as helpful as possible.
