Description

Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM, with an hour break for lunch.
Ages 18+

Spend a couple of fun days exploring the unique attributes of acrylic. Vibrant colors. Rich textures. Expressive brushwork. All are easily achieved in acrylic.

Below is an abbreviated agenda of both days:

  • Class begins at 9:30 a.m. ending at 4:30 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break.
  • Day 1 of this workshop students will work from provided reference material.
    • Spencer will demonstrate his approach to designing, developing and following through to the finished painting.
    • Afterward, students will then be unleashed to implement what they have learned while Spencer circulates among them assisting any that have questions.
  • Day 2 begins with a recap of the previous day.
    • If appropriate, Spencer will do a brief demo to solidify students understanding, followed by time for students to put final touches on Day 1's painting.
    • Then students will create their own painting working from their personal photos.
    • These need to be landscape images, in keeping with the theme of the workshop. This is a great time to break out any vacation photos you've been thinking about painting. 

This class is appropriate for all skill levels! You will love this workshop as you experience the vibrancy of this medium.  Throughout the workshop we will discuss composition and design and the role they play in a successful painting.
