About the event
A free art group for those interested in painting. All levels are welcome. For ages 16 and older.
The primary focus will be on acrylic painting, however water-soluble oils, watercolours and drawing mediums can be used. Please do not bring anything that produces fumes.
You will need to bring your own supplies and materials. If you are not sure what you might need, we would suggest starting with:
Acrylic paints (student grade, if beginner):
- red (warm/cold)
- blue (warm/cold)
- yellow (warm/cold)
A set of flat and round acrylic brushes from fine to large.
A painting palette
A canvas or paper that can be used with acrylic paints
A pencil & erasor
A pad of drawing paper
The Riot Art online store often has sales and afforable prices if you need to find anything: https://riot.com.au/
