Abstraction Private Art Class


Course Details

Overview: This beginners-intermediate private class will offer students a hands-on approach to acrylic painting. In this studio-intensive class, students will work on a project which will be underpinned by colour theory, mixing paints, composition, and subject matter, guided by the artist. Classes on offer include landscape, abstraction, and still life. Students are encouraged to experiment with new approaches, building upon their existing skill set. For group sessions please enquire. Abstraction: In this private class, students learn about the key principles of colour-mixing, discovering a range of painting approaches. Using colour as an expressive tool, students will create their own acrylic painting, with a central focus on developing composition, handling paint, and experimenting with surface quality. Carrett identifies students' individual areas of interest and encourages pupils to build upon their existing knowledge, using material play to generate new ideas and approaches.
