This course is for beginners who have taken ACRYLIC PAINTING (above) or for students with some other experience in painting with acrylics. Instruction and individual guidance in painting styles and techniques will be provided. Topics will include composition, tone, and value, and the use of color. Students will work at their own pace, and create paintings based on what interests them (floral, still life, land or seascapes).
