Description

Class Experience

Acrylic painting techniques: learners will refine existing techniques as well as learn about: Blending, dabbing, textural painting, layering, directional brushstroke work, fine detail painting.  

On top of acrylic painting techniques, learners will also learn about basic composition and lighting.

Patience and persistence: Art is a lot of fun, and part of that fun is a rollercoaster of successes and struggles. Students who complete a 6 part class will (hopefully) challenge themselves enough to make mistakes, learn from them, and grow as artists. 
I will expect learners to do a simple underpainting for every class. Often this will be done in class time, but not always. If a video is needed I will provide one. Usually this underpainting will be a simple solid coloured background. 
• 8 OR MORE PAINT COLOURS: Yellow, Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Brown, White, Black NOTE: Better quality paint usually results in better paintings. My go-to paint is Winsor Newton (I recommend this). However I often use Deco Art Acrylic Paint for classes because it’s more affordable and most students use that brand. • 8 OR MORE PAINT BRUSH: Thick flat brush = at least 1in wide. Medium flat brush = apron 1/3 inch wide. Medium round, hard bristled brush. 2 Medium round, soft bristled brush. Very small, thin rounded brushes (0, 2/0) Fan brush. • 5 GOOD PAINT SURFACE: Hard canvases like a canvas board or wood boards. Two 8x8, two 8x10 and one 10x10 canvases are ideal. That being said approximately 8x10 will work for all paintings. Paper will not work. • 4 PRACTICE PAINT SURFACES: I use thin, smooth, sturdy cardboard from a cereal/cracker/cookie box or frozen food box is perfect. Paper will also work. This is just to test out techniques/paints. • PALATE: I use plastic lids from old containers • OLD RAG/CLOTH • WATER CONTAINER • PAINTERS TAPE • KITCHEN SPONGE • PENCIL AND ERASER • BLOW DRYER
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will provide helpful feedback if the learner sends me a photo fo their painting in the learner area. If the student does not submit the painting they I can not provide additional, valuable feedback. 
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will likely need to use a blowdryer for some paintings.

About Me
