Summer Art Experience with tutor Ken Tucker
Acrylics – Expanding Your Horizons
This workshop is ideal for beginners, medium or advanced students/artists.
Expand your artistic horizons by painting larger scale artworks whilst learning practical skills (min. size canvases &/or 600gsm watercolour papers: 60 x 90cm).
Spend creative days exploring the properties of acrylic (non toxic) aerosol sprays as a technique to composing an under painting. There after by incorporating inks, painting mediums, sprays and a variety
of drawing utensils, these under paintings can be transformed into abstract, impressionistic, or realistic works of art displaying vibrant hues and an exciting ascetic.
You will be able to detail a personal uniqueness into your own artworks, by composition, colour palette and tones inspired and sourced from a selection of your own personal photos or ideas.
