This class is all about you! Finding your voice, developing your style.

 Your choice of subject, style and technique, using acrylic paints. Bring your own reference materials and start a new painting from scratch, bring a work in progress or revisit a painting challenge.

 Develop your voice and take your painting to the next level, or start from the beginning. Wherever you are in your painting journey. My goal is to create an atmosphere of support, encouragement and challenge.

 We will start each class with a group critique session, then I'll provide info and demo based on the challenges we see. I'll follow that with individual attention, helping you with specific concepts and techniques.

 Some topics we will cover: Acrylic painting techniques, choosing a reference, telling a story, composition, focal point, color harmony, color mixing, brushwork, light and shadow, drawing and form, and whatever else come up!

 Drop ins are welcome! $25 per class. Work at your own pace. Pick up a class when you need help, or come each week. Please reserve a spot as our space is limited!

 Bring along what you have, acrylic paints, brushes, support of your choice. Also some sketch paper and pencils.
