This will be an ongoing class teaching basic Acrylic techniques. All skill levels are welcome. I teach in a relaxed, informal atmosphere where students can learn at their own pace. Students are encouraged to choose their own subject matter or I can help you choose a project. Photos references, instruction books, or other references are welcome. Drawing skills are not required for this class.
This will not be a “paint-along” style class where a painting is finished in one class.
Goals for this class is to teach basic skills, including: choosing supplies, canvas prep, use of products, how to handle Acrylic paint, how to use color and color mixing, understanding value, shading, under-painting and layering and many other skills so that you will be able to create great paintings on your own. But our main goal is to
RELAX AND HAVE FUN!
Students will be required to have their own supplies. A supply list is available. The Art Association has no supplies available.
I can also provide instruction in basic watercolor techniques, pastels and other mediums. These would require different supplies. If you are interested in learning other mediums please contact me.
ART IS FOR EVERYONE!
