Acrylics: Painting Realistic Textures

Obtaining precise, realistic results in acrylic painting comes down to one's ability to accurately render surfaces and textures. This class provides students with the essential skills required to render realistic painting effects in acrylics, mastering a variety of surfaces and textures, including sand, water, metals, glass, fur, foliage, wood, bark, fabrics, stone, grass, and many more. Open to all levels. The purpose of this class is to learn techniques, not to produce completed paintings. This is not a mixed media class so only commonly used painting supplies are required and a supply list will be provided. The instructor uses demonstrations and student exercises to encourage learning in a fun and relaxed environment. Request a supply list at time of registration.
