Painting With Acrylics

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

The super power of acrylics is their versatility. Acrylics can be used with various techniques and on a surprising variety of surfaces. In this class we will experiment with different approaches over the four days. While not an introduction to painting per se, the class is suitable for complete beginners, those new to acrylics or who want to explore different ways of using the medium.
