"North Rim Aspens", acrylic on paper
"Experiment in Acrylic Paints, and learn to compose better paintings",
March 2nd and March 9th.
This is a fun class for experimentation in acrylic! We'll be painting on gessoed watercolor paper while learning this flexible and spontaneous painting medium--experience how exciting the potential is for your paintings. Along with technique, we explore design and composition in paintings through discussion, definition, and in-class exercises.
The full range of water-based acrylics will be demonstrated, using it thick like oil or in watercolorlike washes and glazes. Strenghen your paintings with composition; learn painterly effects of atmosphere, texture, drama, spontaneity and the key to acrylics: blending edges. Technique is emphasized, not acrylic mediums or additives.
One requirement: you must know how to mix color and/or the color wheel. Open to interested artists, ages 18+. Best for painters with some experience.
