Denman has teamed up with Sunningwell School of Art to deliver this 'in real life' Art course which will be taking place near Andover, Hampshire from 10am-4pm on Saturday 20th August 2022. Whether you're local or wish to travel a little further to the venue, anyone is welcome to join.


Painting in Acrylics – Street Scenes

During this workshop we will be working from photographic references to produce a bustling, vibrant street scene. You’ll learn the basic ways to build up acrylic paint from the initial background colour all the way through to the finished highlights. Alongside this, there will be a description of how to use basic perspective, how to paint simplified figures that help give scale and depth, and how to create a focal point that draws the viewer into your painting.


Upon booking you'll receive your booking confirmation, along with the address of the venue and an information document. We'll send you further details nearer the time including a video explaining how to paint simplified figures, which will compliment what will be covered on the day.


Please note:

The workshop is suitable for beginners and those with a little experience.

All materials will be provided, however please feel free to bring along your favourite paintbrushes and acrylic paints if you have them.

Refreshments are served at tea-break and you'll just need to provide your own packed lunch and snacks. There is a cafe close by for anyone wishing to purchase their lunch near the venue.
