The painting style of any subject is what makes each artist and painting unique. Students will learn about a variety of painting styles while practicing techniques in acrylic painting. We will review color mixing, composition, under painting and paint application techniques. Students will work to develop a personal painting style to interpret in an original acrylic landscape or still life painting. The class will combine teacher demonstration with work time devoted to individual instruction.
