Confidence with Acrylics
weekly painting sessions
and weekend workshops
Develop confidence with acrylic painting and improve your skills
in any subject area you choose
Whether you are a complete beginner, an advanced artist - or somewhere in the middle -
my acrylic painting tuition can help you!
I run a regular program of weekly painting sessions from my home Studio/Gallery
in New Plymouth. There are never more than 6 in these weekly groups, for an exceptional amount of one-on-one tuition, guidance and support.
For my weekly painting sessions you
"paint your own project"
I will work with you on any theme and subject you are interested in studying, helping you to grow and
develop your work technically and creatively.
We will organise a program together that suits you and gives you increased confidence
and new skills with acrylic paints.
