Intro to Acrylic Painting Workshop

Paint a goddess head while you have a glass of vino!



2 hours Class size 1 to 40     label $75


Come and have some arty fun with Artfolk and learn the fundamentals of acrylic painting!

First, we will discuss simple colour theory and choose a colour palette that suits your style and personality. Using acrylic paint, you’ll learn techniques to create a beautifully unique painting you will be proud to hang!

This session Vanessa will introduce you to the proportions of the face and repetitive pattern options so you can paint a Goddess/God Head.

This workshop is for any artistic skill level, with all art materials and a canvas supplied.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

    • All materials provided, including a 40x50cm canvas
    • And of course Wine! To get those creative juices flowing! (red or white will be available, please feel free to bring something different if you prefer)
What to bring
    • Just yourself and a willingness to experiment

Vanessa has always been an ‘arty soul’, growing up in Byron Bay and always dabbling in art and craft. She holds separate tertiary qualifications in Design, Visual Arts and Teaching, and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills.

As a practising ceramic artist for the past 13 years, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour.

Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. She weaves her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking. Creating a series of themed ceramic works, Vanessa uses either hand-building or slip casting techniques and always strives to leave a trace of the hand on her work.

Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.
