A one day workshop dedicated to painting in acrylics – a perfect introduction to working with the flexible medium or a handy refresher for artists with previous painting experience.

We will look at how to get the most out of working with acrylics – how different techniques can help us achieve fantastic results – from classical, more traditional approaches to more avant-garde applications, we’ll also look at the work of a variety of artists for inspiration before making our own creations in response to still life arrangements.
