Acrylic paints are incredibly versatile, and can be used in myriad ways – from thin washes that look like watercolours to impasto effects, like an oil painting. They’re also fabulously fun and rewarding to use!
In this dynamic 4-part workshop created especially for teens, students will be introduced to a variety of acrylic painting techniques in a contemporary and creative approach. Students will be creating and taking home a different painting every week.
Note to Students: Art is messy, and mediums used in the classes will stain your clothes, please dress appropriately – you can also bring a painting shirt or an apron.
