Intermediate Acrylic Painting – online evening course for adults in employment in Coventry and Warwickshire
This is a top-up course for people who have already completed one of our 6-week painting courses (Painting for Pleasure or Passion for Plants).

We will further develop our colour range and application techniques, but in this course we will focus more on our self-expression and story telling.  Inspired by the art of Australian Aborigines you will explore how we can connect to our internal frame of reference and our personal here and now through art.

If you enjoy reading we suggest Songlines by Bruce Chatwin as it will give you a deep insight into the psychology of the original people of Australia and their relationship to nature or ‘country’, a relationship that sadly we have lost.  This course invites you to connect with your nature or ‘essence’ and to own and enjoy your creative flow.

Level of difficulty: Intermediate.

Course Dates:
Monday 6th June, 7pm-8.30pm
Monday 13th June, 7pm-8.30pm
Monday 20th June, 7pm-8.30pm
Monday 27th June, 7pm-8.30pm
