This class will cover basic composition, acrylic painting techniques, lighting and a little bit about using colour. The painting looks simple enough, but it is actually a pretty good challenge. It requires a steady hand, brush control and patience. It should take about 1.5 hours to complete. This will be a step by step class. I will paint along with my students and pause for questions after each step. They will be following along with me as we paint and interact. Students will most likely...
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. Small, thin rounded brush (smaller the better) - 1 PAINT SURFACE: smooth cardboard, like the inside of a cereal box, or a canvas. No smaller than 5x7 and no larger than 10x12 - OLD RAG/CLOTH - WATER
If students send me a photo of their art I will give them helpful feedback. If they also want a mark, I will provide one based on the attached rubric. The criteria looks at: Composition, Painting skill, Time/Effort, and Final product.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
