Jan 12 - Mar 26
Every Other Thursday

6:00pm - 7:00pm

Ages 14 and up
Learn the art of acrylic painting, one painting at a time! This class is best for students that prefer to work at their own pace, as the lessons are in the form of pre-recorded video tutorials, allowing you to pause, rewind, and work at whatever time of day is best for you.

Every 2 weeks, participants will be sent a video tutorial for a painting. Students will work on the painting at home, and meet biweekly with the class and instructor for a 1 hour live Q&A on Zoom. 

The Q&As will occur at 6pm on January 26, February 9, February 23, March 9, and March 23.

Between Q&As, students are invited to share their work, and any questions they might have in a private Facebook group. 

Painting techniques covered include:

  • Fading objects into backgrounds
  • Going from grayscale to colour
  • Using printmaking techniques to create texture
  • Painting with a palette knife
  • Creating reflections

Video tutorials are sent out following the Q&A, along with a recording of the Q&A for anyone that couldn’t be there live.
