Acrylic paints are very popular amongst artists for their brilliant colours, ease of handling and rapid drying. This course is intended for anyone who would like to try acrylic paints for the first time, or brush up their fundamental skills. By the end of the course, students will have completed a 20×16 painting of a coastal landscape (see reference image below).
