There is a misconception that acrylic paint is somehow “less than” oil paint as a medium and that acrylic paint is best suited for abstract works and not figurative works. The truth could not be more different! In this course, we will explore all the exciting ways acrylic paint can be a perfect medium for working from the figure. Students will learn how to:

  • quickly and confidently work from the model

  • act instinctively, allowing those “happy accidents” to lead the way

  • develop their own unique brush mark

Each class we will start a new painting with a different model. Students are encouraged to experiment with different mediums that best suit their application of acrylic paint, including but not limited to working on paper, canvas, and panel.

Prerequisites: Some experience in drawing and painting is preferred.
