This is an introduction class to the wonderful world of using impasto (thick) acrylic painting techniques. You will be painting on a 40cmx40cm canvas using a palette knife, brushes and even your fingers!!

You will learn how to create an abstract background (which is a painting in itself!) using flat brushstrokes, then how to apply the thickened acrylic paint to your canvas in the shapes of roses, anenomies, greenery and a clear glass vase. This technique is often described as yummy and luscious because of the thickness of the paint.

The finished painting looks great under a spotlight as all the textures are revealed. We will have lots of fun in this workshop as we learn to mix colours and experiment with shapes to create this still life of flowers in a vase. I want every student to take home a beautiful painting that you will be proud to hang on the wall!

This class is suitable for all skill levels, you can be an absolute beginner wanting to plunge into the art world and try out a painting class or be an experienced artist wanting to explore a new painting technique.

 

Please note: This class requires at least six 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.
