Get over your fear of acrylics. Alicia will guide you, learning by painting. You will mix paint and building layers, create colors you like. Start the new year with a new approach to acrylic painting.
By the end of this five week class you will have learned how, on your own, to create paintings (still life or landscape) that please and satisfy you.
You will use colors you like. However, Alicia will be teaching impressionistic techniques like broken color and impressionistic palettes. You'll learn how to mix the hues and shades you prefer. Each week, Alicia will bring several of her materials so you can test many of the options available with acrylics: paint, brushes and substrates (the stuff you paint on).
Each week builds on the last, you will use and add skills in every session.
Alicia will email you a new handout prior to each class. Please print it and bring it to class.
She will also bring to each class different acrylic brands and colors for you to try (a cost incorporated into your course fee)
