Acrylic Paint Exploration
In this class, students will explore acrylic paints and tools starting with the basics. It is a comprehensive painting course designed to guide absolute beginners to a level of producing professional quality acrylic paintings through concise and easy to digest modules. Lessons include basic color mixing grid using the split primary color palette, value study, step-by-step color paintings including blending techniques and more! Students will further their studies in value, composition and painting techniques with guided instruction. Even though the paintings may all start out the same, you will see how completely different everyone's turns out. That's because the young artists are encouraged to make it their own; paint on artist canvas with acrylic paints and unleash your creativity! Students will be required to supply their own materials for the course, and it will be instructed via Zoom meetings.
