Acrylic Painting for the Beginner and Beyond
with Carolyn Wallace-Zani
Paint your masterpiece using the versatile medium of acrylics! This class is designed for the beginner, who has been working in acrylics for less than five years, with an emphasis on learning the basics through practice. The former student will have the opportunity to develop more confidence by perfecting their current skill level, while the more experienced student will explore their personal style. Step-by- step instruction includes: toning the canvas, blocking-in, painting techniques, choosing materials, mediums, and additives and how to design a successful composition. Demonstrations, group critiques, and independent exercises will further enhance your learning experience. No prior painting experience is necessary. Students will progress at their own pace with individualized guidance. Carolyn Wallace-Zani owns her own studio. She frequently conducts drawing classes for children and adults. Her teaching style and drawing techniques focus on using basic shapes as the building blocks for constructing familiar three-dimensional objects.
