Abstract Painting  -  2 day course - £270

with Emma Burnett

The aim of this course is to give you lots of knowledge and inspiration and to cover practical information, techniques and processes relating to painting in acrylics rather than to go home with a finished picture.

Colour Mixing and Theory  -  2 day course  -  £270

with Emma Burnett


Spend 2 days learning about colour.  You will create your own colour scrapbooks to refer back to and learn how to mix the colours you want and shades of those colours in watercolour or acrylics.  Learn about primary, secondary and tertiary colours, the zing effect, cold colours, warm colours, harmony, discord, saturation, complimentary colours and colour energy.  We will also look a the practical application of colour in famous artists as examples of all the above.
