Acrylic Painting - Beginners

Saturday 20th-Sunday 21st February 2021

Totally new to Acrylic Paint, or just starting out? Then this beginners workshop is for you! Artist Lisa Chandler will take you through the different kinds of Acrylic paint and painting surfaces available. She will explain what you need to know about the bewildering range of Acrylic mediums and recommend what to buy so you don’t waste your money. Hands on exercises will guide you through colour mixing, mark-making, and constructing a painting. Lisa will also guide you through a variety of experimentations with Acrylic mediums and multi-media effects so you can see what can be achieved.
