Is this course right for me

Some prior experience with acrylics is assumed. Students should have attended at least an introductory workshop or class.


Please bring the following:
Either a bunch of flowers foliage that you would like to paint, or a print out of a photograph of your favourite garden. We suggest your bring a colour print out on A3 or A4 paper (it’s tricky working from a ipad, or photograph on your phone)
Your acrylic paints. Bring what you have, please use good ‘artist’ quality paints. Inferior paints do not produce good results. We recommend Matisse Derivan or Atelier brand paints
Your brushes. A selection of large and small bristle brushes
Stretched canvas or canvas board
Any acrylic painting mediums that you usually use
A palette knife
Your painting pallette
