Acrylic painting is similar to oil painting but with less drying time. Because it dries quickly, it is good for instruction and beginners. Acrylic is also water base making for easy clean up. This class will go over the basics of painting. At the beginning of each class the instructor will give a short introduction covering an element of painting. You will begin painting the first class, so bring the required material listed below. I will be guiding you during the production of your art work. At the end of each class we will have a critique of all work.
