About the Event

This class is open to beginners and/or to intermediate students. It is for all those who

would like to learn additional skills and for those who wish to experience the process of

painting with acrylics. Acrylic paints are one of the best painting mediums because they

are more “forgiving” and can be painted over quite easily if an error is made. In this

class students will create paintings of subjects of their own choice. Photos and/or

reference images are highly suggested and are the responsibility of the student. Having

some knowledge of drawing and color mixing will be helpful but is not required. For

those who are more familiar with the basic methods of using acrylics, continued acrylic

techniques and the use of mediums will be addressed. This is a 5-week class with a

second 5-week continuation class to follow. Come ready to have fun while also creating your very own works of art you'll be proud of!
