Acrylic Painting Techniques

With Alexandra Darbyshire
Monday afternoons, 1-4 pm at Pegasus Art
April 23rd – June 4th

This is a great six week course for people with beginner to intermediate experience who want to learn about the wide spectrum of techniques possible with this versatile medium. Alexandra will give in-depth demonstrations, showing how to add acrylic “mediums” into paint colour mixtures to achieve desired effects, including luminous glazing, wet-in-wet blending, impasto (thick texture), and staining. Participants will begin the course working from a basic still life and eventually move on to their own source material and experiment with self-led projects if desired. Colour mixing and composition tips will also be covered during the six weeks. There will be a break on Monday May 28th for the school half term break.

Eight weeks   £96

Acrylic painting for beginners and intermediates

With Alexandra Darbyshire
Tuesday April 17 – May 22nd, 1-4 pm
Pegasus Art, Stroud

This six week course is suited to individuals who have never painted before before, or have some experience, and are ready to expand their skills and confidence with acrylics. The versatility of acrylics allows participants to create fast drying artworks with water based paint, making it an ideal practice for adapting in a limited workspace of one’s own at home (such as a kitchen), with simple cleanup and no paint thinners or fumes.  Alexandra will introduce the painterly “wet-in-wet” technique commonly found in acrylic and oil painting, which involves spreading wet paint colours together on the canvas to create new colours together instead of pre-mixing every colour on a palette beforehand. Colour mixing, paint handling, helpful tips, and composition are covered.  Weekly exercises consist of simplified subject matter, so that students don’t get overwhelmed with too many elements. Participants will be allowed to bring their own self-led projects and source material for the latter half of this course if desired. There will be a break on Tuesday February 13th for the school half term break.

Acrylic Painting for Beginners with Alexandra Darbyshire

Have you ever been tempted to take up painting lessons but are worried you don’t have the abilities to keep up with the rest of a class? Then this six week course is a great fit, suited to individuals who have never painted before before, or have a bit of experience, and are ready to expand their skills and confidence with acrylics.

Alexandra will introduce the painterly “wet-in-wet” technique commonly found in oil painting and now adapted by many acrylic painters. Landscape from photo sources and floral still life will be the focus of this six week course, concentrating on simplified subject matter, so that students don’t get overwhelmed with too many elements. Colour mixing, paint handling, helpful tips, and composition are covered. Participants will be allowed to bring their own self-led projects and source material for the latter half of this course if desired. There will be a break on Wednesday October 25th for the school fall term break.
