Susan is a fabulous acrylic teacher. I prize a teacher who shares practical tips on how to use the medium. Susan shared her experience of paints, their costs, the type of paint she likes using and why. She also gives clear, constructive instruction on composition. Her demonstrations on colour choice and blending are informative but not restrictive. We covered a range of subjects in the course, and i feel better informed and happier about taking risks with my acrylic paintings.
