The Art Box

Acrylic Workshops July 2019

Our all-day acrylic workshops are planned to allow more time and space to paint than is usually available at Anne's fortnightly classes. They are suitable for those with a little experience in painting and drawing but not necessarily with acrylic paints. If you are unsure, you should be OK to come along if, for example, you have attended any of Anne's other art classes.


The cost of either workshop is £33 which must be paid in full on the day (by cash or card). You don't need to bring along any of your own equipment (although you may if you wish) as paints, brushes and primed paper will be supplied. We restrict places on each of the workshops to 12 to allow Anne plenty of time to talk to everyone individually, help you with your own work and answer any questions.


So if you feel like coming along what do you do? To book a place email Anne on or give us a call on 01438 318398 (we have an answerphone and will always ring you back).

Water Lilies in Acrylic

  • Fri Jul 26 9:30 to 3:30
    Sat Jul 27 9:30 to 3:30

    The theme for the workshops is painting a picture in the style of Monet’s Water Lilies. Anne will bring along a completed painting to show you the type of work we will be creating during the day.


    To start off the workshop she will discuss the various types of acrylic paint available and how to use them. She will also demonstrate the use of her own version of a wet palette. This type of palette is used to keep acrylic paints “wet” throughout the day.


    Then to get started on the painting she will demonstrate how to lay down a “watery” coloured background. After that she will show you how to start the painting using the techniques favoured by Monet. She will then be available throughout the rest of the day to guide and help you with your own work.
