Beyond the Basics in Acrylic Painting – Summer


Course Code: ADAA-su24 Categories: , Tag:


Students in this class will continue to refine their skills in acrylic painting. We will work to expand knowledge of color mixing, composition and paint application techniques while creating personal painting projects. We will also look at the paintings of master artists for inspiration of style and technique. The class will combine teacher demonstration with work time devoted to individual instruction. This class builds on the skills learned in the LCE Acrylic Painting for Beginners class but is open to all who have worked with acrylic paints in another program or on their own.

Supply List- One canvas or canvas board (size range from 8 by 10 to 9 by 12 inches),
Acrylic paint in small size tubes (Basic colors – Titanium White, Yellow Azo, Naphthol Red, Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Siena) or any set of yellow, blue, red, white and brown acrylic paints you may own already, disposable palette paper or white paper plates, acrylic artist brushes (small round size 2 and 3 flats in size range of 2, 4, 6), landscape photos or still life objects, a cup for water and paper towels. These are suggested supplies to get started. If you already own a set of acrylic paints and brushes please use what you already have at home.
