So the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough NH has invited me to teach an Introduction to Acrylics course this spring. It’s a 6-week course in which I will lead folks through the many wonders of painting with this versatile medium. No experience is required and I’ve designed it so it is appropriate for experienced watercolor or oil painters too. Here’s the course description:
MAY 4–JUNE 8
SESSION 1: TUESDAYS, 10AM-1PM (P4A) / SESSION 2: TUESDAYS, 6-9PM (P4B)
Acrylic paints have come such a long way—the harsh colors and plastic-y look is totally a thing of the past. If you’ve always been curious about acrylics but didn’t know where to begin, then this class is for you. We’ll explore their incredible versatility and have a lot of fun doing it, to boot! You’ll get a chance to put the paints through their paces, discover how to achieve a variety of different effects, and see how well acrylics mix with other media. It could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship with a whole new kind of painting—or just the inspiration you need to take your art to the next level. All levels welcome. Materials fee payable to instructor: $20. M $145, NM $165.
