This course offers an introduction to this extremely versatile and forgiving paint. Students will learn how to mix acrylic pigments with basic acrylic mediums and gels. *Mediums and gels offer the artist a world of control in changing acrylic colours, extending paint, increasing drying time, building texture and altering surface finishes. We will examine ways to start a painting, blending techniques to create depth, as well as basic colour mixing. Extensive instructor demonstrations will help students to understand the ABC’s of manipulating acrylic paint.
