11th of November

On November 11th, there will be a hands on demonstration of exciting new acrylic paints and mediums.

Those attending the night will be invited to try them out and experiment. The newly developed acrylic paints have qualities that artists have been wishing for such as thick buttery texture and no colour shift! Used with texture mediums, collage and other mixed media, exotic rich surfaces can be created. Subtle delicate results can also be achieved. 

This is a chance to try out these new materials and discover the possibilities of these modern developments in artists quality paints.

Acrylic paints have opened the door to many new ways artists can express their creative vision.
