Acrylic Painting Course

Through the sessions (either 8 sessions, 12 sessions art immersion or 24 sessions art immersion), you will slowly grasp the many techniques needed for acrylic painting and also learn how this medium differs from others. We understand that different people will have different art experiences – some might have not held a paint brush since their schooling days while some might have had much experience. As such, our professional trained art instructors will cater to your different pace of learning to ensure everyone gets specific and personalised instructions and guidance that will benefit you the most. This course is suitable for adults, teenagers and kids.
