Acrylic Painting

Some people really like the simplicity of painting with acrylics.  They mix easily with water,  dry fast for easy painting and handling, can be painted on canvas, wood, paper, glass, metal, you name it, they can be painted on it, except oil base paints.  Then you need special primers!

Acrylics are less expensive that oil paints, and can be used “Impasto” like thick oil paints, or in a watercolor, flowing wash style.  Or both!  They are so versatile, people often start with acrylics before anything else.

I teach all my classes for – beginners to advanced – so you need not start with acrylics, unless you just want to!

I teach four different types of acrylic painting classes: 


  Children  –  Ages 4-6  for information about these classes click here:  Little Hands 


  Family classes – Ages 7-to Adult – These classes are designed for young or new artists, young or old. This class is set up for individuals or a child and parent.  Individual children or adults are welcome to attend, but if an adult wishes to attend with a child, the child’s rate is discounted. (But only with accompanying adult)  For more information click here: Family Class


  Introduction to Acrylic Painting Parts 1 & 2 Ages 12 and up – Everything you need to know to paint with Acrylic paints.  Surfaces, mixing, brushes, style, cleanup etc. Using seasonal themes – and basic stroke instructions.   For more information click here:  Introduction to Acrylics


  Concept to Canvas – Ages 14 and up – For the student who has some experience with painting either in Acrylic or Oil.  Either in the our introductory classes or with another instructor.  The goal of this class is to teach students the steps to master painting and skills for creating artwork they and their families will be proud of for generations.  This is a three part class.
