Art Workshop: Acrylic Landscape Painting (Materials included)
The landscape has long been a traditional subject matter in painting, and it continues today to inspire and animate creative painters.
Acrylic paints are the perfect medium for capturing the light and colour in a landscape, be it figurative or abstract. They also have an advantage over oils, being fast drying and easier to manipulate.
We will use this as a means of investigating the multitude of mediums and paints available in the acrylic range that give the ability to match the fineness of watercolour washes, to the richness of oil paint colour and impasto.
You can use a selection of supplied imagery, your own sketches or photos, and even make some supervised foraging.
Acrylic paints, glazing medium, drawing materials, palettes and paintbrushes will be provided throughout the workshop. You will, however, need to bring your own acrylic paper pad (preferably A3+) and canvas.
The class will be lead by Maltese Artist Jackie Micallef. Jackie is well-known for her large vibrant abstracts and powerful textures, creating unique combinations in each artwork.
These art classes are suitable for all levels and art groups are kept small to ensure individual attention and guidance.
