The Versatility of Acrylics … Intermediate

Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th March  from 10am  – 4pm each day

Storth Village Hall,   Milnthorpe,   Cumbria,   LA7 7PH


This is an invitation to all the ‘graduates ‘ of my recent acrylic courses, and those artists wishing to develop their own approach with acrylics under my guidance,  to come and spend a further weekend of immersion in the exploration of acrylic painting.

With the emphasis definitely on you – your own particular focus and intention – we will devote these two days to developing a series of paintings from your own studies and inspirations. You can choose to work abstractly or from a set up or studies, but the emphasis is on helping you develop your own ideas whatever your starting point.

With access to my array of acrylic mediums plus help with choosing the correct support, size and format, you will be encouraged to carve out your own path and develop a more personal and heartfelt way of working.

There will be daily exercises to help you loosen up and tune into the potential of both yourself and the paint alongside guidance in helping you to select an effective colour palette, format and scale as you develop your work.

Most importantly though this is an opportunity to engage specifically with the energy and vigour of your studies and understand how to let these aspects lead you forward to the next stage  – a completed painting that is able to communicate your initial impetus and also glow with a force of its own, evidence of an evolution of the ongoing communication between yourself, the initial spark and your creative process as it unfolds before you.


I do hope that you accept this challenge !
