Trout Museum of Art

Intro to Acrylic Painting | Ages 12+

In this 4-week course, Gretchen covers setup and materials, color mixing and pigment choice, brush-handling, as well as gels and mediums. Learn the foundations of working with acrylic paint and how they are the simplest and most effective way for an absolute beginner to learn how to paint successfully. They can be used in thin layers like watercolors or in thicker, more opaque applications like oil paint. They dry quickly and can be diluted and cleaned with water, making them simple to use and odorless. Come create your own style and unleash your inner artist!

The workshop meets 4 times on Wednesdays: Nov 29, Dec 6, 13, 20.

All supplies included. TMA members receive 10% off all registrations.
