In four classes students will learn the basics of working with acrylic paints while creating an original landscape painting. Class one will review color mixing, composition, underpainting and a variety of styles used by landscape artists and students will begin their painting. Class two will introduce a variety of paint application techniques and students will begin to add detail and texture to their paintings.
