Acrylic Painting Basics
Thursday April 25 6-8 pm DEADLINE for Registration 3 Days Before Class
Instructor Melody Davis $35 /2 hours
Introduction to color mixing, personal palette building, tools, brushes and mediums, techniques and surfaces. Call with questions and to confirm.
Acrylics are very flexible: they dry quickly or you can add medium to slow it down; they are transportable in short order; offer easy transparencies, combinations of various media and the best part, no chemicals and easy clean up.
It is as vibrant as any oil paint out there. I used high quality oils for 20 years and occasionally still do but I can get the same results with less mess!
- Please bring a watercolor or multimedia paper pad [11 x 14 or larger]
- A basic 5 piece set of acrylics containing medium red, medium yellow, ultramarine blue, black and white ( IN TUBES) plus burnt sienna and raw umber. We can mix from these quite well however other sets are available containing more colors- it is up to you.
- If you care to purchase tubes individually and you intend to work in this medium, I suggest heavy body Liquitex paints which I use in my own work. Yes, they are more expensive, especially the red and yellow medium but they are denser (so you need less), more consistent and mix very well.
Other colors, mediums, brushes and tools will be provided.
