Simplified Acrylic Painting ll, Helen Solomon
Helen Solomon I-A
In this Acrylic Painting course, you will learn how to prep your canvas, and how to transfer your own reference from your own photos or the two free websites such as Pixabay or Unsplash. Once your drawing is on the canvas, the FUN begins with painting in acrylics. This course is in-depth and it’s also a FUN two hours of studio time with other acrylic lovers. This intermediate/advanced art class continues the exploration of acrylic media and techniques with a more in-depth study of acrylics, aesthetics, and medium. Students will have the ability to talk about their work and the work of others in classroom critiques that we do at the start of each class. Please note, this is not for beginners.
