Beginner Acrylics with Gillian - 1 Day September FRIDA with Gillian Grove

Join us for this 1 day workshop to cover the essentials of learning to paint using acrylics. All materials supplied (except your canvas!) for a chance to work bright and bold with this fast-drying medium.

Would you like to get started in painting but need a little help to understand where to start?

Artable has designed the perfect 1 day workshops for you to try your hand at acrylic painting. We will be inspired by Frida Kahlo to create a portrait full of colour. You will learn:

- What acrylic paint is and how it gets applied to a canvas

- What brushes are best to use and how to make paint blend 

- Tricks to keeping acrylic paint open & keep it from drying too fast

-  Basic colour mixing (but not too much colour theory - join our colour mixing class for colour theory).

- Where to start and options for drawing up your image at the start.

Please bring a 40x40cm canvas with you, all other art materials will be provided.
