Acrylics with Maryika Welter

Exploring Acrylics with Passion

Skill level: Intermediate
Estimated material cost: $300*

This workshop aims to explore acrylic paint in a variety of applications including as a wash, with texture, with other mediums and it’ll also touch on alternative palette knife work. You will produce works that are creative, explorative and imaginative.

You’ll be encouraged to open up to creativity, play with your inner sense of anticipation and face the creative unknown.

In part, you will focus on self-expressive passion and using colour to make your works sing or pop.

Subjects and concepts will vary according to participants’ choices and reference materials.
