£60 – All materials included

DESCRIPTION:
Bella will help participants explore mark making, colour and acrylics, then use them to create an artwork from either observation or imagination. Come prepared to have fun…it can get a bit messy so bring an apron or old shirt.

The class is suitable for those with no experience or those who have lots.

A workshop to help develop that inner artist.

A painting is created with marks, the normal tools are brushes or knives…though there are many others.  But how these tools are used makes a huge difference to the final expression of the painting.   The texture of the paint, the speed and manner of it arriving on the canvas, and the energy of the gesture, all affect the final result.

Bella will help participants explore mark making, colour and acrylics, then use them to create an artwork from either observation or imagination.  All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring along any favourite painting tools. Come prepared to have fun .it can get a bit messy so bring an apron or old shirt.

The class is suitable for those with no experience or those who have lots.
