This class is for students looking to become experienced at working with acrylic paints, keeping it simple. We will discuss color and how to mix paint to achieve the colors you want for your subject. Each student will be choosing a subject to work on, first on the canvas board to get to know the materials involved.

As we move into the third week of class we will begin work on our regular canvas and pick a new subject to work on. Students will learn about light source, shading and attention to shapes and details. If students need more time we can finish on canvas board and begin regular canvas the following week.
