Saturday October 6

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

This class is about building a painting layer by layer. Students will start painting with thin glazes of acrylic paint and then begin adding additional layers of textures and paint. Texture will be formed in many ways including use of miscellaneous acrylic media and various household items. Together these ingredients create a richly textured painting. Jacqueline will use her knowledge gained in her training as a Certified Artist Educator for Golden paints to help students develop an understanding of how to make many different acrylic mediums work better for them in their art work. Design qualities of an Abstract Painting is an integral part of the class. There will be a short discussion on color theory. Each student will receive extensive handouts with instructions and color photos for the various techniques that are covered in the class. Students will receive individual attention from the instructor, guaranteeing that their painting is a unique work of art.

Teacher will provide for class to share:
Fluid Acrylic Paints
Various glues, mediums, pastes and grounds
Cheesecloth and other household materials for texture
Tissue Paper
Lace Paper
Extensive handouts
Plates for palettes
Many tools
