Class and Workshop Schedule

Acrylic Studio Session Two


Gardner, acrylic by Jay Babina


Adult painting sessions for intermediate, advanced and beginner levels.  Artists work from reference photos (yours or supplied - primarily landscape or still life). Regular painting demonstrations and the instructor painting along with you allows you total freedom to explore the medium and help if needed.

Each artist receives individual attention working at their own pace and within their own abilities to develop confidence with better techniques of drawing, composition and color theory.  Paintings are developed to a finished stage, working with final values to make them cohesive and dynamic.

All teaching is done with a positive approach and an understanding of the artists personal desires through interaction and discussion. The goal of these sessions is for artists to enjoy their painting experience and have a good time. Acrylic is the perfect step from watercolor into an opaque, solid medium. You will achieve paintings you never dreamed you could do.  A list of basic supplies will be sent to interested artists.
