Creative Acrylic Painting (Nature, Birds, Animals) - 5 WEEK COURSE
Creative Acrylic Painting - Nature, Birds and Animals
For beginners, these workshops will introduce you to painting with acrylics and no previous experience is required. If you are an experienced painter the workshops are setup to help you go to the next level. Acrylics are a fabulous medium as they are easy to work with, colours are vibrant, and they dry quickly.
You can choose your subject from the natural world of animals and birds in their natural environment. Or alternatively you may choose to paint your pet. Short on inspiration? No worries there are many possibilities and we will help you find something of interest.
You will produce a great artwork you can proudly display. You will develop or enhance your skills in:
- Picture composition
- Knowledge of how to mix paints and match colours
- A range of painting skills and techniques
