Acrylic Painting

Let's build a painting! Bring your ideas for a subject and style you'd like to paint. Work on how to build that painting from the canvas all the way up to the varnish. Learn which brushes and paint additives make it possible to paint thin strokes like a watercolor artist, or with thick strokes like an Impressionist. Products and brushes will be available in class so you can experiment with layers of color and texture. Develop your personal color palette from soft and muted to bright and bold. Learn the theory that makes paintings pop!

Supply List:
• Stretched canvas or canvas board: size 16 x 20 recommended, one or more as needed.
• Four Acrylic Tube Paints
I recommend these pigments for best results:

You may want to purchase more colors later.
