This class is for those who have not painted with acrylics before or who want to get back into painting and need a refresher.  We will focus on basic painting techniques, terminology, and color theory through short exercises, still life and landscape paintings projects.

Acrylic is a good medium for beginners with since it is a water-based paint with less clean up.

It is strongly recommended that you have basic drawing skills or have taken a drawing class prior to painting, but it is not required.

In this class, you will:

  • Learn basic art concepts such as: value, composition, balance, perspective, form
  • Get a better understanding of painting materials and supplies
  • Explore different types of marks and painting styles
  • Be introduced to color theory and mixing paint
Materials List:

Students will be supplied with canvas and paint for the first class.

A material list will sent after registration. Students will have the option to purchase ALL their own supplies or select the add on fee of $40 and Detati Art will provide supplies each class.This option is good for those who are not sure if they will continue painting, are just exploring painting and don’t want the expense of supplies they may not use, or those who have limited budgets but want to start painting.
