A Note from the Tutor

‘Often those new to painting with acrylics are unsure of where to start or even how the process works, I enjoy introducing them to the processes and watching the progress throughout the two days. Don’t be worried about giving it a try or even thinking you’re not artistic, if you have the slightest interest in learning to paint this is the workshop for you’
