This will be a fun, interesting, laid-back, and easy to understand class. The level of this class is Beginner-Inter- mediate to Intermediate. You will be painting a Winter Landscape from photo references supplied in class.

First, you will learn how to use perspective, and you will create a simple sketch on canvas with light pencil. You will receive step by step instruction and assistance, as possible, on how to mix all the colors that you will need from the primary colors. You will also receive instruction on color values, the use of composition and light, as well as tips on different brush techniques and how to achieve different effects.

The goal of this class is for you to leave this class with the understanding of how to paint in the acrylic medium. You will create one pleasant and interesting 11 by 14 inch painting in this class.

List of Items needed for Class

Acrylic Paints (This is a beginner's to intermediate class, if you are not using heavy body paints, that's OK. You may use the cheaper acrylics. Galaria Brand or Liquitex Basics are fine. If you are more intermediate and are using the better paints, then use what you have.) PLEASE DO NOT BUY CHEAP CRAFTING ACRYLIC PAINTS IN THE LITTLE BOTTLES, THEY ARE TO THIN AND DO NOT COVER WELL. YOU WILL NOT SAVE MONEY IN THE LONG RUN.
