Textured Painting with Sand with Robert

This event has passed Buy Tickets

Event description

Return to basics, get grounded and channel the freedoms of your inner child again with this addictive and expressive Textured Painting class! 

We'll be working with acrylic paints and sand to combine with our paints to create textured and tactile paints with a 3D element. 

There'll also be a variety of tools to use to apply your paints, but often your hands can be the most fun for layering up the sand paint!

This art class is for everyone. It focusses far more on your own experience of making your artwork, reclaiming painting if you haven't done it for a while, and less about a finished masterpiece. So long as you enjoy yourself along the way.

All materials are provided, come along for some fun in this refreshing art class.

What will we cover?

In this fun, hands on workshop you will learn how to: 

  • Work using acrylic paints
  • How to mix acrylic paint with sand
  • How to paint with palette knives 
  • How to layer your paint
  • You'll leave with your own unique painting!

Please have a think about how to transport your artwork home safely.

Who will be teaching? 

Robert (he/they) is a queer engineer. They clearly don't express enough creativity in their day job, so by night goes by their alter ego ‘ART FIEND’.

Robert believes that art is for everyone and focuses value on the process more than the outcome. As well as different sorts of hands-on painting, Robert also loves sewing as its tactile nature is really good for mental health and de-stressing. You can follow Robert's artistic pursuits on Insta.
