This class is designed for all levels of experience and will be an introduction to the basics of acrylics. We will be completing in-class exercises and students will be encouraged to develop their own work at their own pace. We will focus on materials, techniques and methods, and we will also have time for individual and group critique. We will be looking at the work of historical and contemporary artists for inspiration, while exploring a variety of ways of working.

Class will be guided for first 3 weeks. The second half of course will be guided in first part, working time and feedback in second half of class.

This class will be fun and friendly and we encourage artists to engage with other students in the class.

All skill levels and experience are welcome!

*Supplies provided for in class exercises for the first 3 weeks.

**A minimal supply list will be provided for the final 3 weeks for students to bring to class.

Eileen offers a welcoming and collaborative environment for all skill levels to learn from one another, while developing their own individual art practice.
