Acrylics Are Easy

Campus contacts

Learn the step-by-step essentials, from washes to glazes and opaques. Discover how easy they are to alter and correct for fresh starts. All levels and styles welcome; personal attention, demos and constructive critiques.

Explore the special qualities of acrylics: their similarity to watercolors for washes, wet-into-wet painting, layering (glazing) to build values, define subjects and refine colors. Also, explore similarity to oils with thick opaque applications and final brush strokes to clarify a focal point. Techniques to evaluate works in progress to expose shortcomings, edit distractions, add refinements, make corrections - especially with Gesso.
