ACRYLIC PAINTING FOR BEGINNERS, Tuesdays 1:00-3:30pm, April 6, 13, 20, 27

April 6, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - April 27, 2021 @ 3:30 pm


Materials Fee: $50 payable to the instructor.

Have you always wanted to learn to paint but just did not know how to get started? Look no further as this is a class designed for new beginning acrylic painters. The course will run for four consecutive weeks and is designed to get you started with the basics of acrylic painting. Please plan to attend all classes as they will build on each other. At the end of the 4 weeks you will have created several pieces along with an art journal.

Bring to class: All supplies will be provided to get you started for a $50 materials fee that will include paint, brushes, art journal, canvas and wood panels that are yours to keep. If you already own some of the materials, please contact Cathy to discuss and the fee can be adjusted.

Week 1 – Yes you can draw – Students will start an art journal built on a daily practice of drawing/sketching to aid in learning to “see” and then translating objects and images to paper first using pen/pencil and then paint. Students will be asked to add to the journal throughout the month to aid in advancing their confidence and skill.

Week 2 – Let’s play with paint and color – Students will learn about color theory using analogous and complementary colors to create a “negative” shape painting on a wood panel. The result will be a unique creation that everyone will be proud to display! We will discuss ideas for each student’s main painting that we will start on Week 3.

Week 3- Time to Paint – Students will do a series of quick small paintings with large brushes to get comfortable. Once warmed up, students will get started on their main painting. Individualized suggestions will take place as students get started.

Week 4 – You are an Artist – Students will continue working of their painting with guidance and hopefully move toward a finished piece. We will review each other’s work and make positive suggestions at our final “Art Show and Tell”
