Create this joyful composition in acrylic on canvas!

Play with intriguing colours and patterns to build your very own rich and unique abstract background. Then awaken the spirit of your composition by painting your design in layers. Sally will guide you as you bring to life this poetic scene of birds, branches, and moonlight.

This class is ideal for beginners new to acrylics or artists looking to switch mediums.
