During this full day workshop you'll have the opportunity to work on a painting from start to finish. Perfect for first time painters who want to get to know the ins and outs of acrylic paints. But also for those of you who love painting; whether you would like a refresher, or have a particular idea in mind and need some dedicated time and space. You're all welcome!

This is a small, self-paced class, where everyone works on their own projects, while offering plenty of opportunity to ask specific questions as you're progressing on your painting. So feel free to bring in images of your favourite places, landscapes, animals or pets. No stress if you can't think of a subject matter, there will be some colourful flowers for a still-life scene as well.
