In this ongoing mini acrylic painting class we will meet weekly to create a variety of art using acrylic paint. We will pursue fun, small sized paintings, and explore a variety of techniques that pertain to the medium, as well as learn elements and principles of art in general. The topics will include flowers, seascapes, landscapes, mushrooms, bugs, and more. Through our paintings we will explore textures (my favorite thing!), tone/value, composition, color and more!

Acrylic painting techniques, fundamentals of art, design, composition and color theory.
I have been teaching art for close to 10 years. My focus always was and will remain on the process of making art. It is so important that kids enjoy themselves in their creative expression.
There is no official homework, though the kids might like to finish their artwork independently.
Supplies needed for the class: #1. Paint: Acrylic paint in a variety of colors. You can purchase acrylic craft paint from your local craft store, such as Plaid or Americana. For a more expensive option, there is Liquitex or Windsor Newton. You should have a wide variety of colors to help the learners achieve a desired result. However the 5 most important colors are red, yellow, blue, white and black. Other colors to get: light green, dark green, orange, purple, brown, pink, teal, turquoise, light blue, dark blue. #2. Paintbrushes: You will need a few different brushes. For most paintings you will need a large flat brush for the background, a small flat brush for the flowers, branches and what not, and a small round brush for the details and small branches. Here is my general list of brushes: A large flat brush for large areas, such as backgrounds. A few smaller flat brushes (we use those for the majority of the painting). A medium and a small round tip brush for the final details. For most of my paintings I find that these brushes are enough: # 12 Flat, # 8 Flat, # 12 Round, # 8 Round, # 2 Round. #3. Canvas: These paintings are MINI, so a canvas size 5 by 7, 6 by 8 or 8 by 10 maximum. What I normally get is a large canvas pad (16 by 20) from a local craft store, then I cut the sheets in quarters. If you are using canvas sheets instead of regular canvas, I recommend taping the edges with masking tape. #4. Palette: No need to buy a fancy pallet. A paper plate, or a recycled plastic container will work well. #5. Cup with water to wash brushes in, an old towel, or paper towels to wipe the brush with. Don't forget to wear appropriate clothing for painting!
No official assessment, positive feedback will always be available.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Dear parents, Please go over the supply list. The most important thing is proper brushes! Without a correct set of brushes, the learner might find the experience of painting with acrylics less enjoyable. It is VERY IMPORTANT that they have a large flat brush for the background, a few medium to small brushes, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY A TINY ROUND BRUSH FOR ALL THE DETAILS. The tiny brush can be size 0, 1 or 2. These paintings are MINI, so a canvas size 5 by 7, 6 by 8 or 8 by 10 maximum. What I normally get is a large canvas pad (16 by 20) from a local craft store, then I cut the sheets in quarters. If you are using canvas sheets instead of regular canvas, I recommend taping the edges with masking tape. For this class, the right supplies will make all the difference!
