EXPLORING ACRYLIC PAINTING (Ages 10-15)
Students will be given the opportunity to explore the world of color mixing and acrylic painting. We’ll start off the course getting to know each other and learning about color theory and mixing as well as experimenting with different acrylic painting techniques. Create several acrylic paintings during the course. We will work from our imagination as well as from observation while creating our paintings.
