Acrylic Painting Weekend

Denise Harrison

Develop your skills and increase your confidence in acrylic painting by experimenting with materials, equipment and techniques. The course will cover the formal elements of making a painting through exercises that include colour, tone and composition. The group will be small and informal so that she can spend time tutoring each person.

You will be encouraged to keep a small sketchbook or journal to note key points and create a collection of mark making throughout the weekend.

This course is suitable for all levels including beginners and returning students.


Red Room, Phoenix Art Space

All equipment and materials will be provided but if you already have your own paints and brushes please bring them.
