Acrylic painting classes

Explore your creativity and treat yourself to a fun painting weekend workshop or 6 week series.

As an enthusiastic artist, it is often a challenge to decide how to use my art time, there are always so many wonderful things to make and create and never enough hours in the day.

I have always had an interest in painting and I use acrylics because they dry so quickly and there is instant gratification. I have decorated many items over the years to sell or to give as gifts and acrylics always look great with a coat of varnish or resin.

In these courses you will have the opportunity to work in the way that suits you, while learning and trying new techniques and methods. My task being to facilitate, guide and motivate you to develop a style for your personal taste.  

Studio 88 has a relaxed and calm atmosphere and students are encouraged to make themselves at home. We are all learning, and there no place for judgement and criticism, only support and encouragement. That doesn't mean we don't stretch and challenge you to get the best out of you and we hope to surprise you with what you can achieve.

 

 

 

 Paints, brushes, cardboard and other materials will be available at most of sessions, but students are encouraged to eventually provide their own brushes for use at home and for some of the more detailed class work.

 

 

 

 

 

I've learned so much from my mistakes I was thinking of making more - just come and have fun!
