Funtastic Acrylics

Medium: Acrylics
Skill: Introductory to intermediate
Materials: up to $250*

This workshop will introduce students to an unorthodox painting approach. Be prepared to scrape, spray, throw, and roll paint on your canvas, leaving your brushes to last!

You’ll work with warm and cool colours as well as transparent colours for glazing and textured surfaces. Starting with the abstract, under Jenni’s guidance you’ll move to realism and impressionism. You’ll be encouraged to unleash your untapped creativity without restriction.

Throughout the week you’ll enjoy many of Jenni’s demonstrations as well as individual guidance; you’ll leave the workshop with a new found creative confidence and a greater understanding of managing acrylics.

While some experience will be an advantage in this class, the most important thing required is an open mind!
