Intro To Acrylic Painting | Course

Mondays 6.00-8.00pm, 4th Nov - 9th Dec | Keirunga Creative Hub, Havelock North | $180

If you want to learn how to paint but aren’t sure where to start this course will teach you everything you need to get painting on your own, including what tools to use, how to mix, apply and blend acrylic paint, what surfaces to paint on and how to prepare them.

The first few weeks will consist of practical experimentation and fun and easy projects designed to help students discover how acrylic paint works. Students will then work on their own projects with individual assistance from their tutor. All materials provided for class use during the course.

All the hard stuff is already done for you so you can relax and play with paint and colour before using templates to produce a couple of beautiful small paintings.
