Students will learn how to create an acrylic painting of animals, landscapes or still life from start to finish! The first two classes will begin with learning basic drawing and value techniques. Students will be working from direct observation and photos. The third class will be dedicated to the transition from pencil to color media. The last three classes will be focused on painting and the techniques involved in completing the work. Individual attention will assist students with little, or previous experience. The goal is for students to gain/sharpen skills, learn how to organize a composition, and develop full color acrylic painting.
