Acrylic Painting Workshop
Our goal with these workshops is to enable a creative journey for anyone keen to experience an abstract style of acrylic painting on canvas.
This workshop accommodates true beginners.
You may have the desire to tackle a DIY canvas to jazz up a wall at home, but you need some guidance on how to use acrylic paint to ensure the successful outcome of your project.
Perhaps you have wanted to go to an art class but have felt intimated because you do not view yourself as an artist.
You are keen to explore your creativity to see what you might come up with!
You do not need experience with acrylic painting to participate in this workshop. All you need to participate is a dash of enthusiasm, a positive attitude and an open mind.
During the workshop we will cover basic colour theory, properties of acrylic paint and composition. We will demonstrate a variety of techniques for transferring paint to your canvas (hint: using a brush is just one of many ways!)
We will help you to connect with your inner artist. We encourage you to be brave, post-pone judgement, and embrace the creative learning experience.
The style of this painting is quite abstract, so strong drawing skills are not a prerequisite. It is more important to be able to let go, and let your painting guide you!
Note: Our workshops may not suit those who wish to learn about fundamentals of drawing and create traditional artworks (eg. Still life / landscapes / portraits).
