Summer School: Acrylic Painting with Denise Harrison, Phoenix Brighton


Develop your skills and increase your confidence in acrylic painting by experimenting with materials, equipment and techniques. The course will cover the formal elements of making a painting through exercises that include, colour, tone and composition. Denise will provide a different subject each day to paint. The groups will be small and informal so that she can spend time tutoring each person.

This course is aimed at all levels.

You will be encouraged to keep a small sketchbook or journal to note key points and create a collection of mark making during the lessons. This can then be used to note down ideas, make drawings and collect images in between lessons.

Some basic materials and equipment, including acrylic paper and easels, will be provided. Students will need to bring a selection of paint and brushes.

Costs: £110
Days: Tuesday 27 - Friday 30 August
Times: 10am - 1pm
