Enrol in Acrylics - Explore, Express, Experiment

Course Code: ARTS1894

The most versatile of all paint media, acrylics can do almost anything you want. Through the magic of acrylic mediums, you can change the appearance, behaviour and characteristics of acrylics in surprising ways, from pourable glazes to texturized and transparent impasto, layered encaustic-like effects to sculpted surfaces. In this intensive, materials and process-based course, a variety of acrylic mediums, physical processes and techniques will be explored. These may include drip, scrape, scratch, scumble, tickle, pour, squeeze, sculpt, roll, collage, layer, making skins and embedding objects. You will also investigate tools - how to select, use and customize them, with particular emphasis on unconventional choices. All levels and abilities are welcome (including advanced), the only prerequisite is an open mind and an adventurous spirit.
