Acrylic Painting

Wednesday and Thursday  Mornings

9:45 – 12:15

 

In these lessons you will look at the unique qualities of acrylic paint and how to use them to their best advantage.  You will learn how to mix acrylics, their density and how they dry.  Building on this knowledge you will abstract a pattern from a still life painting and begin to see how the acrylic medium can create very different styles, colors and the different techniques you can use to create your own pattern.  As the workshop progresses you will look at differing styles such as Art Deco, paint on different materials such as canvas and board, and start incorporating new materials such as gold leaf into your final piece.
