PAINTING WITH ACRYLICS, BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE

OSH 901 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English
Locations: LFH 120 , LFH 111

Note: This class is geared towards those who are new to the medium, as well as artists of different levels who have not painted for a while.

Course description: Painting with acrylics can be great fun. Painting is to be enjoyed, not endured. Acrylics are easy to use mainly because they are water soluble, and are not encumbered by numerous technical rules, as are oils. Acrylics allow the artist to jump in and push the medium to its limits. Come and experience the fun, ease and lack of boundaries this medium and class offers. There will be time in class to work on your projects where you will receive assistance and weekly critiques. You will be painting in the first class. Note: This class is geared towards those who are new to the medium, as well as artists of different levels who have not painted for a while.
