Expressive painting in acrylics for beginners-intermediate.



This is a one-day workshop designed for those with some or little experience working in acrylic paint.
We will cover materials, design/composition, and colour.
You can paint abstractly or representationally whichever you prefer. Lynn will help you understand the practice of painting a well-constructed and exciting piece.
The price includes 2 boards for you to paint on. You will be working in Lynn's studio in an old Silk Mill in the ancient market town of Frome, in Somerset. There are only two places on the course so there will be lots of one-to-one tuition. A comprehensive materials list is also provided upon booking.

Lynn has collectors in the UK, USA, Canada, and Europe. She has exhibited widely including in 2021 at The Mall Galleries in London for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition and The Society of Women Artists.

'I did a one-day acrylics workshop with Lynn and really enjoyed it. She encouraged me to go way beyond anything I'd done before and be much more creative with colour and texture. There was a good balance of painting time intertwined with theory on design and colour mixing.
A very positive day, which has fired my enthusiasm.'
Peter Cadman (5* Google review)

'I had such a wonderful day in Lynn’s studio, learning the theory of a good composition, experimenting with sketching and colour mixing, and most of all, learning not to be afraid to make mistakes and just to experiment and feel my way across the board/canvas. Lynn is friendly, open, inspiring, I really recommend her workshop'

Thank you Lynn for a perfect day painting!

Lynn was supportive, encouraging and kind and made me feel instantly at home in her beautiful studio.

Ideal for anyone who is looking to learn new techniques, gain a new creative perspective or just to grow your confidence to create beautiful pieces of art.

Good value and great fun. I can't recommend highly enough!

Response from Lynn Keddie Art:

Thanks for posting your review Rachael, I really enjoyed our day, your enthusiasm and willingness to experiment. I hope you find time in your busy days to spend a little time painting to help you tune into yourself always tricky as a mum, and of course painting with George too, your little, budding artist.

Bridgette Gravelle - - #33631

I had a really good day with Lynn, she explained things very clearly and filled me with confidence ( as l was a beginner) l came away feeling far more confident to really have a go and believe in myself. It was also great fun.
I would definitely recommend Lynn's course.

Response from Lynn Keddie Art:

Thanks Bridgette, I loved your enthusiasm and willingness to try new ways of working. Making art should be fun and you painted some beautiful pictures. I hope you find the time to keep painting in your busy life 🙂

Lynn demonstrated all the techniques clearly, provided the materials needed and gave guidance on what materials I will need moving forward. I very much enjoyed the day and it gave me the confidence to pursue the subject further.

Response from Lynn Keddie Art:

Thank you for your review, Louise. I'm glad you found the course useful. You worked hard and produced some really lovely work. And you painted a very calming work by the end of the day so relaxing as well as informative!
with best wishes

Trevor - - #26753

I thoroughly enjoyed Lynn's workshop - well put together, with the basics covered very quickly from what to paint on, what to paint with, how to mix colour. Good value for money, patient tuition and great for beginners too. Would definitely recommend this course. Lynn was very good at putting people at ease and encouraging you to explore your own style and not be afraid to really get stuck in.

Response from Lynn Keddie Art:

Thank you Trevor, I'm glad you got lots out of the workshop and that it has given you the tools and confidence to carry on. Mission accomplished😁

Jeanette Bevan - - #26738

Response from Lynn Keddie Art:

I'm really pleased you got so much out of the day Jeanette. You worked hard and painted some really lovely pictures. Keep at it!
