This course will focus on the fundamentals of acrylic painting. Emphasis will be placed on color theory and basic skill exploration.  A range of subject matter will be explored including: still life, nature (from a photo provided by student), abstraction, and realism.

No previous painting needed, come as you are. If you haven't painted in awhile, this is a perfect opportunity to get back into it.

CTAC will provide supplies for the first class.  Materials to be discussed in the first class.    Please see materials list below.  If you already have some of these supplies that is great.  If you need to purchase supplies Sherry will discuss in detail about the supplies needed, where to purchase and the various options available.  CTAC will also have an option to place a group order to save on costs.
