Explore acrylic painting through exercises designed to help you gain confidence in your work. Students learn how to take advantage of the qualities of acrylics--a dense but quick-drying medium--rather than trying to emulate oil paint. Exercises in landscape, narrative, and portraiture encourage students to experiment with color and composition. Demonstrations of technique and class discussions will engage students in a dialog that focuses on the process and the potential of the painted image.
Note: Prerequisite: Introduction to Painting or equivalent experience. Materials list distributed at first class meeting.
