Acrylic Painting Class By Jennifer Bowman


Feb 20-21, 2021 10-3pm

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.

$225 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. Class size will be limited to 10 social spaced students wearing masks.

and Sunday. $100 each day with a max cost of $250 for all 3 days.
If you have not taken any classes from me before, you are allowed to sign up for the Friday class.
This will be a VERY beginner, “color-wheel, pear and wine bottle painting” easy class. The remaining
days will get progressively more informative and detailed. No matter your level of painting ability, you
will enjoy all of the following days. Do not be intimidated.

Jennifer’s joy is contagious and you will have a blast hanging out for three days of fun and exploration
while playing in the paint. You’ll learn basics like color, composition and values as well as fun
techniques of splashing rubbing alcohol and rubber placemat textures. We all learn and laugh, and
you go home with an “I can DO this” confidence and knowledge. Click on the supplies link above to
