ACRYLIC PAINTING FOR BEGINNERS Tuesdays,10:30-1:00pm • Sept 6,13,20,27
September 6 @ 10:30 am - September 27 @ 1:00 pm
Description: 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.
Materials: A specific materials list will be provided to all enrolled students. If the student would like a complete “materials kit” provided by the instructor, that can be arranged for $50 payable directly to the instructor at the first class (please order one week prior to the start of the session). The materials kit will include paints, brushes, art journal, canvas and wood panels that are yours to keep. If you already own some of the materials, please contact the instructor to discuss and the fee can be adjusted.
Bring to class: Please bring all supplies to the first class. If you have requested a “materials kit”, it will be ready for you on the first day!
Week 1 – Yes You Can Draw – We 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 and paint mixing and will use analogous and complementary colors to create a “negative” shape painting on a wood panel. 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 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 on 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”.
