Exploring Acrylics Sundays

6  Week Workshop — Sundays, April 7th – May 12th, 2024 –  Walk-ins Welcome!*
___________________________________________
Join artist instructor Norma Tolliver for this six week session where we will be creating Grisaille paintings using shades of gray or sepia.  Grisaille was particularly used by the 15th century Flemish painters and in the late 18th century to imitate classical sculpture in wall and ceiling decoration.  Grisaille painting can be used as an undercoating to be glazed over with translucent color.  This style of painting creates a pronounced sense of three dimensionality by focusing on value, shadows and highlights.
Each 6-week session focuses on a different technique to increase the student’s use of acrylic paints in creating art.  Some of the techniques we teach through the year are painting realistic seascapes in both brush and palette knife, reflections, fire and ice, night scenes in alizarin crimson, portraiture, light through trees, metal, fabric and fur, and so much more.
Guidance is provided for color choice, color mixing, brush choice and use.  Students participating in this course are comfortable working independently and are working towards improving their skills.  Constructive criticism is provided before and after each painting session.
Students are encouraged to bring their own image to paint.  It cannot be an image of a painting.
