About this event


Learn the basics of color and composition to create paintings using acrylic paint. Students should come with basic drawing skills and reference ideas for paintings. Still life, landscape and the figure are all welcome. The elements and principles of design are introduced and reinforced throughout this foundational painting course.

4. The best quality paint is Liquitex Professional Acrylic Artist Color Heavy Body paint (Classic Starter set). Michaels - $54.99. You may need additional colors. Do not get Liquitex Basics (bring only if you already have them at home).

6. Apron or paint shirt

7. Bucket for water
