    Acrylic painting is fascinating.  The colours are intense & bright but can be subdued with mixing techniques. Drying time is quick so we will complete a couple of paintings in the workshop. Whether you’re a realist or abstract artist, you will have fun, meet new friends and pick up a new technique. In the workshop we will explore intensity and textures using the palette knife. There will also be an open format for discussion.

    SUPPLIES – please bring what you have. Will also need:

      • assorted acrylic canvases, boards or paper – e.g., 8x10, 11x14
      • Good quality acrylic paint – tube, jar or bottle
      • Favourite brushes, assorted palette knives – see below*
      • Water bucket for cleaning tools
      • Soft cloths, paper towel or Kleenex for wiping, cleaning, spills, etc
