You will be introduced to the process of painting using acrylic paints, gels and mediums. Acrylic is essentially plastic, and it is opaque by nature. Acrylic mediums are used to make acrylic paints behave differently, become glossy or transparent for example. Acrylic is a water based paint, easy to start using but it takes practice to get to know it well and be able to manipulate it the way you wish. This course will teach you some finer techniques and approaches to painting with acrylic. Colour mixing will be explained and demonstrated, as well as different application techniques. Important work in acrylic will be shown and class critiquing conducted. Personal attention and feedback will be given. A materials list will be provided.
