This course is designed for beginners or those new to acrylic painting. Students will learn the basic technical knowledge around surfaces, tools and materials used in painting. They will go on to learn how to mix colour, understand shape and tone and bring these elements together to independently produce acrylic paintings. Classes will be run by a professional artist and restricted to 16 or less. We will be using the Winson & Newton Galeria Acrylic paint range. Progression is available onto intermediate acrylic painting.

You will need to have paid in full before the first session of your class. Your place is not guaranteed until we have received full payment. Please book early in order to guarantee your place on the course. 

Tutor Profile: Anna Liber Lewis

In 2019 Elephant West commissioned her first major solo exhibition entitled ‘Muscle Memory,’ a collaboration with friend and musician Four Tet. Anna gained her M.A. from The Royal College of Art in 2015.  She won the Griffin Art Prize 2017 and in the same year won the Young Contemporary Talent Prize supported by the Ingram Collection.
