Class Experience

Basic acrylic painting skills will be taught. Brush control is very important for this painting and that only comes with experience and practice. This class will help to refine that skill. 

Students will also learn how to compose a simple painting and a little bit about how to use highlights, midtowns and shadow. 

It is my goal that students leave the class with a beautiful cactus painting and enthusiasm to do more work with acrylics.
No homework is assigned, but if a student is unable to finish their painting during the class I will expect them to finish it on their own time and send me a photo for feedback (optional) 

Not all students paint at the same pace, so some students may need to finish the painting on their own time. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
- 3 (or more) PAINT COLOURS: Dark blue, green, and white (optional: an aditional background colour) - 3 PAINT BRUSH: Thick flat brush = 1in wide. Medium round brush = 1/3 inch wide.

1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
