Paint along with Bridget (acrylics)
Let Bridget guide you through a couple hours of painting in a step-by-step format.

This is for those of you who would like to know more about painting. You will learn about mixing, brush techniques, layering, glazing, scumbling and paint application. And whilst you are learning, you'll probably knock out a couple of masterpieces too!

It is essential that you refer to sections “What do I need to bring?” and “Is there anything else I need to know?”.

You will need to bring and have prepared for class:

Synthetic paint brushes (3/4 inch flat, ½ inch flat, approx. Size 5 round, approx. Size 0 round and a Size 0 rigger (very long bristle).

A palette.

A flat area to mix paint onto (could be an old large margarine tub lid or a place mat).

A large water tub (sort of size of 200g coffee jar).

A rag to wipe your brush on. Protection for your table (work area).

An easel (if you have one).

Acrylic paint set (at least size 75ml each). You may be able to buy sets from places like the Range or Hobbycraft in York. Colours: titanium white, a black (or panes grey), a blue (perhaps ultramarine), a yellow (like a mid-tone), a brown (maybe raw or burnt umber), a red (like brilliant or maybe alizarin crimson), and a green (like a sap green). Any other colours are welcome too e.g. yellow ochre etc., if you have them.

Something to paint on, a canvas or canvas board (x4) (size: larger than A4, don’t go any larger than A2 as the larger the area, the faster you will have to work and the more paint you will need). You may wish to use acrylic paper and buy a pad. If so, you will need to tape your paper onto a piece of board.

No session on 31 May 2022 (half-term holidays).

You will be sent the reference photo via email and it is up to you to have it ready to use for each session. You will need to have the image drawn out before the class.

This is a paint along class so it is essential that you are prepared and ready to paint before the session begins. Please have your work station ready… your paints squeezed out on your palette, water in your tub, everything to hand.

This is an online course that will be delivered via Zoom, so please ensure that you can access this on the device you are using.

You will receive your Zoom login details 24 hours before the course is due to start. If you enrol late, you will receive the Zoom code on the day that your course starts. (If you haven't received your Zoom code by the day of your course, please check your junk email inbox.) The Zoom login code will remain the same throughout the course.
