Introduction to Weekly Acrylic Painting Basics:

Before joining Acrylic Basics, we HIGHLY recommend purchasing our introduction tutorial video! Students will gain a greater understanding of the essential art supplies needed to get started with acrylics and how to navigate the overwhelming buying options online and in the stores. We will go over the different brush selections, painting surfaces, palettes, paints, and more. There will be drawing exercises, helping you build the foundation for painting.

The only supplies you will need for this video is a sketchbook (or plain paper), pencil, and an eraser!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Explore your creative side in our Live Virtual Acrylic Painting Basics Course! This course is for anyone who wants to learn to paint with acrylics or advance their painting and creative skills. Start at the very beginning, learn about choosing paints, painting surfaces, and how to make the most of your paint and brushes as you create. Basic color theory and color mixing will be explored as well as textures and techniques. Also incorporated are drawing lessons on perspective and composition. This course begins with important painting basics and continues to teach technical skills for intermediate and advanced painting as sessions continue. Everyone will work at their own pace. No previous skills required, that is except for some basic painting tools to start, like brushes, surfaces and paints.

Dear Fellow Artist, Art Lover, Beginning Painter,
I love to teach. Helping another person to have that “aha” moment and inspiring them to do their art on a regular basis is my goal. Doing art, making art, comprises many facets. Do we want to paint still life, intimate landscape or portrait? Depending on which, how do we start, how do we keep colors lively, how do we use our brush as an extension of us? And then, after we have been painting for awhile, the other questions which begin to surface…how to stay excited, how to grow in our work, how to photograph art work, what about selling…lots to explore! The one ingredient that will be present in each of my classes is my passion to excite, motivate, and inspire others to find true joy in expressing life through painting!
