There is something special about acrylic painting. First of all, it is simple to change images if it is desired because regular acrylic dries quickly and another layer can be added. It has brilliant colour and can be manipulated to be watercolour-like or much like oil paint. In fact, there are Open Acrylics that take longer to dry so that it becomes easier to paint outdoors without the paint drying too quickly in the sun or blown dry by the wind. There are many additives available in the form of gels, pastes and mediums. It is an ideal medium for creating unique images.
Participants must purchase supplies ahead of time and bring to each class. Please find a list of suggested supplies below:
