Acrylics Workshop

This class is for students with some experience in painting with acrylics paint. After a brief review of color dynamics and painting techniques, students will each paint separately ... each expressing their vision as they see it. Using only photographic reference (not other artist?s work), or their own still life setup. This is not an analytic or academic approach but is designed to encourage each painter to paint from within and express themselves visually with color, shape and form such as landscapes, floral, portraits, cityscapes, abstracts ... in realistic, contemporary, impressionistic techniques are encouraged. Instructor works with each individual as needed. No class critiques. This class is not for beginners.
