Course Description

Acrylics on Penarth Pier

Call Vale Courses 01446 773831 to book your place.

A course for discovering the versatile joy of painting with Acrylics. Suitable for all levels of ability with gradual and complete instructions every step of the way for each project.

Each project will begin with a drawing and exploring techniques session to prepare you for creating the artwork. Projects may run for 1-2 weeks.

You will be provided step-by-step demonstrations, to be followed by you in stages. There will be time to create and reflect on your progress, with the tutor and each other.
A short break will take place halfway through for 10mins, which will give you time to chat with each other and grab a cupper.
