Paint Away, Capturing your Holiday on Canvas – Acrylic

Art Workshop £35.00

Date: 16 January 2021

Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Location: Online (Zoom)


Course Description: Deciding what to paint can be an arduous task. In this course, taking your favourite holiday photographs as inspiration we will learn acrylic painting techniques to translate the sensations and experiences captured in that moment onto canvas.

We will explore how to evoke a particularly magical aspect of the photograph (and memory of it!) to really create something to treasure. There will be time for Flora to provide you individual painting and composition technique advice to best accomplish your artistic goals.


* Please have a photo ready from one of your holidays. This can be a photograph of absolutely anything that you would like to paint!
