BEGINNING ACRYLIC PAINTING (ONLINE)
Weekly Online Class
with Shawn Dell Joyce
Learn the basics of painting in six classes. Make six different paintings, one for each class, and learn specific skills with each painting! Each class focuses on a different art concept, brush skill, color skill, and drawing skill. At the end of six weeks you will have all the basics to be able to paint independently with confidence. Art skills you will learn include composition, foreground/background and where to begin, and creating the illusion of depth and perspective in your paintings. Drawing skills include how to transfer a drawing to a canvas (3 methods) value scales and value sketching, and starting with simple shapes. Learn how to mix and match color, and make your own color wheel. Learn how to use different brushes and what they are for, as well as tools like sea sponge and palette knife. Learn how to use sighting to draw in perspective and self evaluate your own work to build on your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. Great class for learning the basics! This class is online and you will be interacting with a others painting live at the same time.
