Painting is a great hobby, and painting fantasy miniatures is fun, and anyone can do it with these easy steps

Class experience

This class will teach a few basic skills and cheats to painting great looking miniatures, quickly and cheaply, so that the student can play their game, or just display and be proud of their minis.
 I have been a Dungeon Master for the past 44 years and involved with many other roleplaying games that use miniatures, so I have been painting them for almost as long. I have seen people online that are far better than me at painting, like I said my main interest, as a professional game master, are in other areas, but I can teach what I know. I know how to teach a few skills to anyone, of almost any age, to paint good miniatures they will be proud to say they painted it
 The Learner will need the following items before they start the class:

Acrylic paint (It does not have to be expensive; Walmart sells a variety of paints that work great)
Brushes (these should be small, maybe sizes 000,00 and 1, they don't have to be fancy, Walmart has them)
One miniature that the learner would like to paint (No nude miniatures allowed)
Paint colors needed (BLACK and what other colors the painter would like on their mini, make sure to get a flesh tone you like, and metallics like silver and gold, browns for leather that sort of thing)
A can of spray sealer, it is in the craft area, likely near the paints.
A palette to mix and dab paint on (this can be a piece of cardboard, an old wooden cutting board is what I use)
A jar to hold water in for cleaning brushes (Make sure your computer is out of the way of the paint and water)
 I have been a Dungeon Master for 44 years, and one of the coolest things to me about the game are the miniatures. They are what brought me to Dungeons and Dragons. When I started playing back in the 70's they were made of Lead, we would carry them to games in tackle boxes, and they were so heavy the handles would break off the boxes. Now a days they are plastic and much more convenient to carry around. I love them, and I teach all my classes here on Outschool with minis and a camera that puts you right there at eye level on the board, so the minis need to look good.

As a full-time professional DM, I spend a lot of time going to game stores, conventions, and surfing game stuff on the internet. The saddest things I see are people playing with unpainted miniatures. Why? Because they don't have the confidence to paint them. Recently I saw where you could send them off and let other people paint them for a small fortune. Let me tell you this, I can teach you how to paint your miniatures quickly, inexpensively and get them on the board.

This is a beginner painting class. This is not an advance miniature painting class where you will be entering your miniatures into contest, like I said I am a Dungeon Master first, painter second. I would rather spend my time building worlds and creating interesting NPCs. This is a class where I show you a powerful trick or two for painting miniatures that look great and that you will be proud to put on the board. 

My process of painting does not require any fancy miniature paints or expensive brushes. If you are interested in winning contest, you can learn the fancy stuff later.  This paint class is for the many D&D Players and Dungeon Masters out there that are more interested in playing the game with their miniatures. 

So, if you are a beginner when it comes to painting miniatures and have unpainted miniatures then this short class is for you.
