About the Course

One day art workshop - learn and improve your painting technique with artist Chris Forsey.

The day will start with Chris giving a short demonstration of his approach to acrylic painting , including an explanation of how he uses mixed media in his work. This will be followed by informal individual advice and help as you embark on your own paintings.

Reference material will be supplied by Chris, but you are very welcome to use your own sketches and photos. The workshop session will finish with a short, helpful appraisal of the days paintings.
