About the Course

“What does it mean, jellybean?... Even if I knew, I could only know what I thought it meant.” John Chamberlain (1927-2011).

Abstract art may be over one hundred years old as a genre, but it can still baffle and provoke as much as it intrigues and excites. This one day, practical course in acrylics demystifies the art form by looking at the fundamentals of all painting from an art historical perspective, before guiding participants through the creation of three very different abstract works. Suitable for all abilities and attitudes (from doubters to the plain curious), this course is for anyone who wishes to gain more confidence with their colours as well as their brushwork.
