4710: Transform Your Favorite Photograph into a Vivid Acrylic Painting

Thursday, October 12, 2017

This class covers the foundation of acrylic painting. Students will work from personal photographs to create a composition on stretched canvas. Students will learn how to translate an image and plan a composition, sketch the image on canvas, implement different painting techniques and how to use color to create a vibrant painting. Acrylic paints are a highly effective medium for beginners to learn to paint successfully. They may be applied in thin layers like watercolor, or in thick, opaque layers like oil paint. Acrylics dry quickly and may be diluted with water for simple, odorless clean-up, making them accessible to everyone.
