Beginners to Advanced

In this workshop students will explore their own brand of creative interpretation, to be discovered during this fun filled impressionistic painting day. Work from a still life of beautiful Summer flowers, lush fruit, tea pots and cups set out on brightly coloured drapes, and watch how your colours “pop” as you paint on a black primed canvas. Painting techniques and the utilisation of acrylic colours will be revealed via group demonstrations, with individual assistance given to all participants.
