An intensive five week course starting on Tuesday 14th May, with weekly demonstrations and step by step guidance to suit all learners.

Aimed at total beginners, these informative sessions will guide you through the application techniques and many special properties of this interesting medium.

Starting at a gentle pace and working from a variety of different models, we will study colour mixing and the use of mediums to create one or two pictures per session.

The most notable character of Acrylic paints are their extremely fast drying time – this makes the painter work speedily and spontaneously; something that takes a while to get used to if you’re usual medium is watercolours.

PROS – fast drying time – paint over mistakes easily – water soluble – lights over darks – cheap to buy – paint on any surface

CONS – fast drying time – lurid colours – dries a darker shade – can ruin brushes – stains clothes –

* TOP TIPS – invest in a quality thick white Acrylic paint, use cheap brushes and wear an apron/old clothes.

COURSE DATES – 14th, 21st May ( Half Term 28th) 4th, 11th, 18th June –

TIME – Tuesdays 10 am – 12.30

VENUE – Mountfield Village Hall

FEE – £60 if using your own paints/ £75 for paints/brushes to be supplied
