Beginner Acrylic Workshop

Introduction to Acrylic

Saturday, JAN. 7, 2023

10:00 am - 3:00 pm 

$195 /1 class

supplies included

You will learn the basics of acrylic painting, what types of acrylics are best, what to paint on and what brushes to use for the type of acrylic paintings you wish to create. You will create a small abstract painting while learning the many different ways that artists use acrylic paint whether it be for abstracts, landscapes, still life or portraits. 

Many people start their painting exploration with acrylic because it is such an easy paint to use but get frustrated with the medium when they aren't sure how to use it. In this workshop you will learn about the benefits of acrylic as well as it's limitations. We will also cover some of the additives that can make working with acrylic a little easier. This is an explorative workshop where the focus is learning about the medium.

Painting abstractly allows us to explore what the acrylic can do rather than trying to make it look like something.

Some colour mixing will also be discussed.

Includes 1 video: "Choosing your painting surface"
