Acrylic Painting for Beginners with Alexandra Darbyshire

Centre for Science and Art, Lansdown, Stroud ¦ MAP HERE

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. 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 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.
