This class will also be about building a painting layer by layer. But these layers will be different. We will concentrate on "unusual textures" - those that cannot be bought at the art supply store. Let's get creative and think about what type of texture can we make from things around us! Coffeee, tea, sawdust, and more! 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. Color theory and design is part of any class that Jacqueline teaches in abstract art. 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.
