Art Classes 2024 - Expressive with acrylic

Let your imagination run wild exploring colour and abstract design with acrylic. This is Bayley Arts favourite art class with tutor Naomi Heath who will guide you along the way to learn the required skills and techniques of abstract design through colour, shape, form, and composition. Each class will explore a different technique, so no class is the same. All materials are supplied but you are welcome to bring your own painting support. Students will produce a unique artwork at the end of the class.


There is the option to book individual sessions or the full 4-week course.
