More information about this course...
This course focuses on acrylic paints and mediums. It is a technique-based course. This means that instead of showing you how to create a specific piece of art from start to finish, I am demonstrating for you a variety of art techniques that you can use in your own art and designs.
The 100 techniques are divided into these categories:
Painting Techniques (24 different ways of applying, lifting, dry-brushing, masking, resisting, etc. acrylic paint)
Layering Techniques (16 different techniques for layering, including glazing, simplifying, overlays, and how to get started on your first layer)
Texture techniques (9 different lessons for bringing texture into your work)
Printing techniques (15 lessons including gel plate printing, stamping, imprintings, rubbings and more)
Mark-Making techniques (20 techniques for making marks in your art, including graphite, charcoal, oil pastels, chalk pastels, inktense, water-soluble media, etc., and how to seal them on your work)
Other techniques (16 more lessons including working with gold leaf, varnishing, stitching, vintage papers and photos, etc.)
You likely already have most of the supplies in your toolbox. Some of the materials we will use are acrylic paints, brushes, papers, soft rubber brayer, writing and drawing tools, gel mediums (or PVA), etc. Of course, you will be provided with a complete supply list upon enrolling.
