Learn to Paint in Acrylics | One day workshop with Rachel Fairfax

This one day workshop for beginners will help you start the practical methods and techniques required to compose a simple Still Life composition working in the studio. Bring along a favourite object to paint to learn how to paint simple subjects that are interesting to you. In this workshop you can expect to:

  • Learn how to draw the composition
  • Learn practical colour theory and colour mixing skills to start your experience in learning to paint.
  • Take home a finished painting and a new found confidence to continue.

Rachel will teach the basics of painting techniques in a practical and logical way using acrylic paint.

Is this course right for me?

No experience necessary. It’s a great start for absolute beginners, lapsed artists, or if you just have a favourite object you want to paint but don’t know where to start.


Included in the course fee is use of our acrylic paints, mediums, brushes and also canvas or canvas paper.

However, if you have some acrylic paints, brushes etc that you’d like to use, then by all means bring them along too. But no need to rush out and buy them – this is a taster workshop with everything supplied to make it easy for you.

Please bring the following:

  • bring along a favourite object to paint – something quirky, fun or nostalgic. (Or a couple to choose from.) Don’t worry about the colour – we can play with that on the canvas!
  • bring some rags
  • bring a notebook and pencil

Maximum of 10-12 students in all our classes Our class sizes are small, ensuring you receive the individual tuition you need.
