This course presents acrylic paint as a multipurpose medium and as an alternative to oil paint or even other water-based media. The new formulations of this extremely safe paint now provide an even wider range of possibilities and applications. The wider choice of paint formulation and forms of delivery to any surface-including acrylic markers and acrylic spray paint-will be covered in this course. Acrylics will be used to produce images that range from still life to landscape to the figure, and will explore styles from "loose" to photographically representational. The many uses of acrylic paint as a non-representational medium will also be discussed and demonstrated.
NOTE: Please bring a #2 pencil, a nonspiral-bound sketchpad and an X-Acto knife (#11 blade) to the first session.
