Acrylic Painting Workshop

Craig Penny – acrylic artist is coming to Brisbane! We are flying him up from Melbourne to teach a 2 day workshop in our Brisbane studio at Artful Snippets Studio and Art School. Immerse yourself in the wonderful medium of acrylic painting.

See Craig's work in his Colour In Your Life T.V episode on YouTube!

Artists with any level of experience are welcome in this workshop. Come along and enjoy learning more about this wonderful art form with guidance and teaching through painting beach scenes, water, reflections, boats and a street scene. Experience a variety of approaches including - learn how Craig uses very few brushes to blend colours to achieve both a painterly and atmospheric scene.

Suitable for beginners to advanced levels of experience.

​"I like to think that to paint a successful painting is not so much to have tamed the beast, rather to have been taken along for the ride and still be there at the end of the experience.

​For me painting is like life … giving yourself enough skill, knowledge and integrity and then letting yourself free to take what is thrown ​your way.


You don't need to tame and control it for magic to happen... you just need to be there at the end."
Craig Penny

Born in Mildura, Craig has shown an interest in art and drawing from a very young age and has created a successful career as a professional artist.

In 1970, the family moved to the Western District of Victoria and Craig's love of art and artistic interests extended into ceramics and sculpture.
Craig has constructed several wood fired kilns for this purpose. You could say "it fired his imagination".

Studying art at Ballarat University, painting and graphic design claimed most of his attention allowing him to pursued a successful career in illustrator as a member of the Illustrators Association of Australia
for many years.  

Craig has skills in a range of mediums including computer graphics.  
He taught both traditional drawing, illustration and digital drawing at both Victoria University and Swinburne University. 

Craig never lost his love of using traditional methods and now specializes in watercolour, acrylic painting and illustration.

In 2001, Craig had his first major solo exhibition in Mt Eliza, Victoria. There have been many exhibitions and awards since.  

Craig's work has been accepted by Galleries around Australia, Singapore, SE Asia and California, USA as well a many private collections and is ​in strong demand today.
