Do you want paint but not exactly sure where to start? This is the class for you!

In this class, I am going to teach you everything you need to know about Acrylic Painting in order to get started. Acrylic is such a great medium because it is very easy to learn and use.

I cover A LOT of information in this class but I have it broken down into 6 categories:

  • Your Workspace- I will show you my workspace and what tools I use to make it the perfect place to paint. Spoiler Alert: you do not need a fancy studio to paint, the kitchen table works great!
  • Color Mixing- I teach you how to mix colors and get a beautiful range of colors using the 3 primaries plus white and black.
  • Brushes- I show you all of my favorite brushes and the different marks they make, as well as, Palette/Painting Knives!
  • Texture (Acrylic Mediums)- I teach you how to use Acrylic Mediums to build really nice texture in your paintings and also how to create the desired finish on your piece.
  • Dimension- I teach you how to create dimension when painting an object to avoid it looking flat.
  • Depth Of Field- I teach you have to achieve depth of field when painting a landscape by using scale and color.

And much more!

At the end of this class, you will have all of the skills you need to begin painting! Be sure to check out my How to find your own style as an Artist class as well!
