This course will focus on the diversity and flexibility of acrylic paint. If you'd like to introduce new techniques such as mono-printing and collage into your paintings, then this course will be of interest to you. We'll be focusing on creating abstract backgrounds, and either developing an abstract painting or incorporating abstract with representational subject matter. Teressa creates a friendly and inspiring environment in which to learn, and gives plenty of demonstrations as well as one-to-one guidance while encouraging you to develop or discover you own direction or style of painting.
