Acrylic course with Maria Tavares
Anyone interested in painting in a fun, relaxed and informal environment with like-minded people is welcome to join this course, whether you are a total beginner or wishing to improve and extend your skills.
The emphasis will be on the versatility of the acrylic medium in comparison with watercolours and oils, mastering the art of mixing colours. You will be spending time painting outdoors and in the studio, and watching Maria's demonstrations.
This is Maria's 5th time at the school; these are some comments from students last year.
'We all agreed that she was not only a very good art-teacher, but she also set the 'tone' and created such a good atmosphere in the group. As the course was held in Portugal it was also a great asset to have someone who was familiar with the country's customs and traditions."
Cost includes 4 nights accommodation, all meals and a 3 day course. Also included is a trip to the islands by taxi boat.
