Acrylic Workshops Oct 2016

The acrylic workshops were the fourth of our series of all-day workshops for 2016. The workshops were well attended with each of the two days fully booked. Many thanks to those of you who attended one of our all-day workshops for the first time. With such large numbers both workshops were very lively and enjoyable.


Anne kicked off each of the days with a discussion of how to use acrylic paint, some of the people who came along hadn't used acrylics before. She then demonstrated how to produce a background using acrylic primer (gesso) and coloured acrylic. This was followed by a demonstration on how to sketch out an initial idea on cartridge paper. After lunch the fun began and everyone started using the acrylics to paint their chosen dog.


Once again Anne was pleased to note that students from all our venues came together to make two great workshops.


There were some fantastic pieces produced on both days and the gallery shows some of the works in progress.


If you would like to join in next time we hold an all-day workshop keep an eye on this site for news or email Anne and ask her to send you details when available.
