Course summary:


This course will give you a greater understanding of how to use colour to create interesting and evocative paintings with acrylic paint.

Acrylic paint is a versatile medium and is also great fun to work with. It is fast drying and water based, making it accessible to all. With a huge range of colours, it is easy to mix your own and introduce a range of texture and techniques into your work.

Under Denise’s expert guidance you will:

  • Learn how to mix, choose and apply colour to a painting
  • Feel more confident using acrylic paint, gels and mediums
  • Create several small painting studies and one larger painting
