“Get Your Feet Wet” Acrylics Beginner classwith Tracy Budd
4 classes: Tuesday, April 25–May 16 • 9:30 a.m.–Noon • $135
A truly beginner watermedia acrylic class just for those who have never painted or have never painted in acrylics! Acrylic is the most exciting medium because you can work like a watercolor painter and an oil painter, all in the same painting! They are great for vivid transparency and for building heavier body areas. They dry fast and you can endlessly layer without disturbing the layers beneath. We will cover all the basics and not so basic things this wonderful medium can do. The supply list will be kept to a minimum and Tracy will supply some needed items. Don’t be shy and signup for four weeks of FUN! All you need is an open mind and a willingness to learn! Use form at left to contact Tracy for the supply list.register_button
