Follow-Up class to our 4 & 6-Week Beginner Acrylic Painting Class. Only available to returning students who have completed a 4, 5 or 6-week beginner course.
This class will jump off from the basics and start to dig into technique, practices, style and composition. We’ll start off learning about different brands of paint and mediums while playing in a creative session to loosen up from our tendencies toward rigidity and see where our own creativity takes us. We’ll work on a new painting of your choice (from a reference photo), but this time we’ll paint the way an artist would traditionally paint. Then we’ll play with a limited palette in a complementary study where we’ll all paint the same objects. Lastly, I’ll have everyone bring in a painting from an artist they admire or just love and I’ll help you re-create that piece of work. You learn so much by copying artists…really…it’s not a bad thing! promise.
Here’s a break-down of the series:
Week One: Creative Session
Week Two: Begin Painting of Choice
Week Three: Finish Painting of Choice
Week Four: Complementary Color study
Week Five: Paint from a painting from an artist of your choice (learn the artist’s style & techniques)
Week Six: Finish up painting from a painting
Limited to 8 students.
Class runs from October 4 till November 8.
I would recommend upgrading your paint to professional heavy body colors as you start to run out of Basics/Student grade paint if you haven’t already and purchasing a few more canvases. (1-8×10, 1-12×16, 1-14×18 or 16×20 ) (we have the supplies here if you’d like to buy them on the first night as we’ll provide you with all the necessary supplies for the first night).
