Acrylic class Tri-Dee Arts Store in Mt Vernon, WA.

Jennifer’s classes are about learning the process and techniques to paint anything! Don’t worry about your skill level, beginners are always welcome.

The class is aimed at the beginning/intermediate student and it is her desire to create a positive and joyful atmosphere that nourishes the development of each artist’s special talents and perceptions.  Each day starts with a demonstration, where techniques are used in multiple ways to help the student grasp concepts.  You will explore color, value, composition and light.

You will be working on pre-textured surfaces, experimenting with working in color-layering glazes, ‘wet into wet’ and dry brush strokes, and palette knife. Using a strong light source, you will learn to create three-dimensional qualities on two-dimensional paper.  You will work on composition and its importance in balancing your image. Using concepts about rhythm, shapes and color, you will be able to lead someone’s eyes through your painting.   You will learn and laugh, and you go home with an “I can DO this” confidence and knowledge.

$175 includes small warm-up boards for each days use, hand-outs and access to texturing pastes and Varnishes. This will be a beginner’s to Intermediate class on Saturday and intermediate/advanced on Sunday. You can sign up for either or both depending on your needs. Supplies are available with the art store. http://trideearts.com/contact/ – 360-336-6131
