Intro to Acrylic

"Tammy is an excellent teacher.  Her thorough explanations and step-by-step instructions make painting rewarding and fun.  I have learned many new skills in her lovely (covid friendly) studio and look forward to taking future workshops there." -Theresa Z.

"Summer Puddles" acrylic by Tammy Pilon

Learn the basics of acrylic painting while creating landscape and still life paintings.


For those who have never tried acrylic or have had an introduction to acrylic and are ready to build on the basic techniques such as colour mixing, planning, layering using water and glazing, wet-in-wet blending, dry brushing, palette knife technique, etc. Every new landscape requires a new set of skills. Let me show you how to create trees, clouds, water reflection, grass textures, light and shadow on objects, etc. ​The focus will be on creating colourful paintings with an end result that doesn't look overworked. If you've done this class before you can repeat take it again and learn new techniques with every painting.

supply list will be emailed upon registration
