Funtastic Acrylics - throw, scrape, pour & play with paint (5 DAY TYALGUM ART RETREAT) with Jenni Kelly

This course will introduce students to an unorthodox method of painting with acrylics, involving scraping, spraying, throwing and rolling and leaving the brushes till last. The Tyalgum Art Retreat is the largest gathering of the arts community in the region. With 5 whole days dedicated to furthering and refining your artistic skills, you are sure to learn from those with an abundance of wisdom and experience as well as making friends with other participants. 

This is one of the tutors teaching at our group retreat in July. We bring 8 artists together with 100 students. The most affordable of all our retreats, this one has dorm accommodation. If you want something a bit more 'upmarket' then you are best to look at our other retreats on offer.

Through demonstrations and individual guidance from Jenni, you will leave the workshop with a newfound creative confidence as well as a greater understanding of managing acrylics. This workshop does not require any previous experience.
