This Acrylics Course consists of 3 classes, each lasting 2.5 hours. It makes the perfect gift for someone (or you can always treat yourself of course.....)


The classes will take place at the Love Painting Studio at Tree Tops Nursery on Holmes Chapel Road


I intend to run the acrylics course on an ongoing monthly basis, but purchase of this item will book your sessions for the following dates:

Saturday 3rd August

Saturday 7th September

Saturday 5th October


I intend to have classes on the following dates too:

Saturday 2nd November

Saturday 7th December

Saturday 11th January

(these three are not included in the course price but will be available to you going forward (subject to change)

We wont be repeating the same paintings but some of the techniques will be used in future classes. It's all great practice!


Once you are booked in, you will get priority to future dates of our monthly acrylic sessions, which will happen on the first Saturday of every month going forward (if this proves to be popular).


Please note that there may need to be the occasional exception to these dates where it cannot be avoided, but you will get plenty of notice where possible and you can transfer to the next convenient date (for instance in January, we will look at a class on 11th and not the 4th perhaps)


Start time is 10.00am and we will finish at 12.30pm


The course is suitable for all levels, from complete beginners to those with some art experience.


The price for the course of 3 classes is £125 per person

You can choose to pay in full for 3 sessions (£125)

or split it over 3 months using Klarna or Paypal 'Pay in 3'

I was going to have a subscription service but it doesnt seem to work properly! I may offer this in future if I can get it working!!


Here is an overview of what will be covered in each class:


Week 1 - Colour palettes and colour mixing - how to avoid mud!

We will be looking in depth at choosing colours for your palette and mixing colours to achieve bright clean colours and avoiding making muddy yuck colours. Then you can create a small painting on a canvas board using your chosen colour scheme


Week 2 - Acrylic techniques, making great skies, scumbling and blending colours. Again you will be able to create a painting on canvas board using these techniques


Week 3 - Using texture mediums. You'll love this one. Messing about with texture is so much fun. We can all create a painting of a rocky mountain scene on canvas board.


Because we are spending time learning these techniques and trying different things out, the finished paintings will be smaller than in the one-off painting sessions - but you will be so proud of them, and you'll have learned so much AND had lots of fun AND cake too!


Going forward we will also be looking at different techniques, different brushes, glazing and washes, mixing different media with acrylics and also looking at styles of painting, realism, impressionist, pointillism, abstract etc etc


Throughout the first three sessions, we will also cover methods of transferring pictures onto paper and explore different composition guidelines.


These sessions aim to be informative and enjoyable for all participants. You will learn lots and gain the confidence to try these techniques on your own. There is no pressure or judgment, and everyone is welcome, regardless of skill level. We provide all the necessary equipment and materials, so just bring your imagination and have fun!


The classes will include:

- Painting demonstrations

- Techniques and tips for creating beautiful paintings

- Advice on materials and equipment

- Guidance on creating a good composition in your painting

- Step-by-step instruction and individual guidance to help you to learn the most you can

- Advice on how to further develop your skills.
