About the course

Join this three-day course to discover the versatility of this easy-to-use, quick-drying, vibrant medium.

The tutor will explain what acrylic paints are and how to work with them – considering composition, line, tone and colour.

There will also be an opportunity to explore the different media, materials and painting surfaces that using acrylics presents in the creative process.

About the tutor

Stuart Simler trained at Leeds University as part of the Fine Art BA (Hons) Course, graduating in 1997. His early experiences as an artist were based around drawing - the
idea of draftsmanship excited him, in particular its versatility and range of mark-making possibilities.

He has gone on to exhibit both internationally and at grassroots level in local events and community exhibitions. He maintains his connections with two collectives - Collect Connect and Sunbury Working Artists (SWA).
