Painting in Acrylics
NEW ongoing class

Gain experience and knowledge on foundational techniques in acrylic painting and develop your own project with guidance from your instructor. Anyone can improve on these skills and all levels are invited. In the first half of this eight week course you can develop your skills in colour theory, brush techniques, and composition. With these skills in mind, you are invited to come up with your own painting to be worked on over the second half of the course. You will receive one-on-one support from your instructor and overall synergy from fellow classmates as you work through your project, leaving this course with your very own work of art.

Painting Techniques
Register anytime

For beginners through advanced students of painting. This practice-based class helps you understand the logic of colour interactions – what works and what doesn’t work in paintings. Each week has a clear theme which is demonstrated and explained in the first half hour of class; afterwards each student is encouraged to explore the theme on their own. Students benefit from seeing each other’s paintings and talking about the process; class critiques are twice per session, in order to share possibilities for how to develop each painting further. Emphasis is on sound painting technique and skills that will last a lifetime. We work from observation and from imagination.

Instructor: Eberhard Froehlich
