Intermediate Acrylic Painting

Advance your knowledge of acrylic painting by practicing technical applications of paint. Students will develop their own style of painting as they learn advanced techniques. We will learn how to paint in various genres, to paint from life, and to develop a concept from sketch to completion. Students will complete multiple paintings but will finish with a final painting that is the culmination of their conceptual, compositional and technical knowledge.
