This class is focused on the landscape. We will explore elements of landscape, including mixing colour & composition. Work ranges from impressionist to abstract landscape, depending on the interest of the students. The class will primarily focus on acrylic painting. Demonstrations are given at the beginning of each class, introducing techniques and use of materials. Students are encouraged to explore the inspiration that intrigues them, and it is up to you whether you paint one each week, or a painting that takes longer.
“Jacquie makes time to work with each student and help when we are struggling.”
Open to all levels, beginners welcome.
