Learning Objectives within Acrylic Painting course:

If you are a beginner without any foundation who has never held a paint brush before, fret not because our Acrylic Painting courses are very beginner-friendly. We will start teaching you from the foundations and guide you through the learning process.

If you already have a foundation or a background in Drawing and Sketching or other mediums, it will be great to learn Acrylic painting too as it is a great kick-starter to grasping colour theory that would apply to all mediums like Oil Painting in the future! These techniques learnt will also be a great way to enhance the acrylic painting techniques you already have!

Each subject in your acrylic painting requires a different brush stroke and has its own unique application. Learn to apply and choose suitable brushes to create the textures you see on different subjects with different textures such as fabric, ceramic, glass and stainless steel etc.

Learn to express different acrylic painting strokes which you would use on landscape elements like trees, sea, mountain, clouds or the sky!
