Acrylic Painting

One of the mediums you can try out in our Art Immersion Course is acrylic painting. Acrylic painting is one of the most popular art mediums right now, known for its fast-drying and convenience over oil paints. Over here at Visual Arts Centre, students who wishes to do acrylic painting can decide for themselves what subject they wish to paint. You can bring to class a picture of a landscape or an architecture building they fancy and create something of their own, under the meticulous guidance of our professionally trained art instructors.

Watercolour Painting

Another medium we provide you with is watercolour painting. Watercolour is a gentle and subtle medium that yields beautiful results in the end. In these watercolour painting sessions, you will gain first hand knowledge of basic watercolour theory, mixing and colour usage, watercolour brush work and techniques. This course is suitable for beginners or those with prior knowledge to watercolour painting. Students will be exposed and asked to observe watercolour works done by other people and learn through emulation of those good works. You will also be exploring diverse subjects and themes, ranging from tropical fruits and flowers, to landscape, architecture and plein-air painting.
