Acrylic is a popular fast-drying paint that consists of pigment suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion. Learn to make exciting paintings with this versatile paint medium, a water soluble alternative to oil paint.  Specific techniques will be demonstrated by the instructor followed by exercises and projects that employ those techniques. These techniques include: impasto effects where paint sits on the surface and conveys depth and texture; dry brush techniques and transparent glazing with acrylic for layering color; and methods for blending one color into another for a smooth gradation. This class is appropriate for students at all levels of experience.
