Take a whole weekend to develop your artistic practice.


A truly exciting opportunity for those who are interested in starting or developing their art practice.


Starting from scratch we explore what's involved in working with acrylic paints and developing a painting using acrylic techniques.


Over the weekend you will build a complete Artists Journal detailing "The Essentials" of building a painting using colour, line, design and value.

During the weekend, as well as developing an understanding of the importance of colour, line, design and value, we'll explore a variety of hands on methods of applying paint to get some truly stunning effects and introduce you to different techniques using paint and collage.

Suitable for all levels and abilities.
