Children’s Acrylic Painting Class for grades K-8th
$10 per student, all materials provided
Students will develop skills for making expressive paintings based on their experiences working with their natural environment. The subject matter will include still life objects, and their own feelings and emotions. Color, texture, layering techniques and expressive brush work will assist students in emphasizing the descriptive elements in their paintings. Composition and the use of light are essential to understanding how to work with acrylic. Different colors reflect different light and this is important to understanding how to create an expressive painting. Students will learn to see how these elements can be transmitted to their work to create depth and dimension in their paintings. We will be examining the world through their paintings. These experiences working with acrylics will assist students in understanding their own thoughts and feelings while providing them with the necessary skills to tell their stories in their paintings.
Adult Watercolor Workshop
$35 per person
Students must provide supplies for adult class. Please contact for supply list. Approximate cost of supply list is $15.
This class will be focused on introducing students to exciting still life subjects and, possibly some Plein Air Painting (painting from life outside) depending on our light and weather. Students will be introduced to specific techniques for applying color, texture, graded washes, wet into wet, and expressive brush work used to create dynamic paintings while maintaining the wonderful transparency that makes watercolor such a creative medium. Demonstrations will also assist students to find their own individual way of working with watercolor. Feel free to experiment with the wonderful light and transparent effects of this exciting medium. We are looking forward to welcoming you on this exciting journey into the world of Watercolor! For more information on Tricia Spencer, please visit her website: www.artworktspencer.com.
