Acrylic Clinic with Missy Morrow
$80, $75 for ACWL Members
Learn the basics of painting with acrylics with local artist Missy Morrow!
On day one, Missy will do a brief demo and discuss her supplies, set up and work process including:
– How to use a Sta-wet palette so that the paint doesn’t dry out on the palette
– Simple brush techniques
– Simple color blending tips
– Paint background of your painting
On day two, participants will:
– Trace the image onto the dry painted background
– Finish working on the final painting with help from Missy
Students get to pick the subject matter! Suggestions include: a favorite pet, flowers, any old barn, the lake; basically any image that you want to work with. Email a digital copy of your image to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to class and we will resize to the canvas size of 12″x12″ or 16″x20″ vertical or horizontal based on you choice.
This class will meet on Wednesday, March 9 and Thursday, March 10 from 10am – 12pm. Your registration fee includes all supplies, along with a set of 21 ml Blick Studio Acrylics in 12 colors for you to take home!
