This ONLINE course offers an introduction to an 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 and basic colour mixing. We will work on small canvases no larger than 9” x 12” or 12” x 12” to facilitate completion of these introductory projects. Extensive instructor demonstrations will help students to understand the ABC’s of manipulating acrylic paint.
A choice of images for each class will be emailed to participants a day before class begins.
