Acrylic Painting 101
Taught by Karen Lynn Ingalls
Saturday and Sunday • to be rescheduled
New to acrylics? Wondering what they're all about? Come find out – and unleash your creativity as you play with paint. In this work-(play)-shop, we'll explore many of the different ways you can apply paint to paper or canvas.
You will have a chance to play and experiment with paint, to explore how it feels. You'll also learn basic color mixing.
Then you'll create two paintings, experimenting with both abstract painting and painting from an object, as you learn how to use acrylic paints in a spirit of discovery.
On the second day, you'll learn how to use glazes and be introduced to acrylic mediums. Then you'll explore using acrylic paints in a way that looks like watercolors in a third painting, and you'll be able to develop all three of your paintings, with Karen's guidance and support.
This is an excellent introduction to acrylic painting, whether you've never painted before, or whether you're experienced in another medium, and want to discover just what it is you can do in acrylics that you can't in any other paint medium.
This workshop is designed for both beginning painters and painters who are new to acrylics. A materials fee of $25 covers all your materials and supplies.
