ACRYLICS ON SLATE          25/ 26 July                          2 days

Create on Slate with Acrylic Paints

Slate can have a soft undulating, yet smooth surface with subtle colour variations. The quality of the slate surface can dictate the positioning of an image painted upon it. Using acrylic paint, which binds well to the slate, students will have the opportunity to paint from a number of subject matters and genres. These could vary from portraits, (animal or human), flora and fauna, icons, landscapes or abstract painting.

Students should bring photographic references and/or images of favoured subjects, drawn or otherwise, although some visual references will be available. You will need drawing pencils, acrylic paint, brushes, and sketchbooks for preparation design work. This course is suitable for the beginner or the more advanced artist and will give you the opportunity to explore design work and acrylic paints in a supported and encouraged atmosphere, leading to a completed painting to hang on your wall!
