Acrylic Painting 2 – Portraits – IN STUDIO

Acrylic Painting 2 – Portraits – IN STUDIO

Class Description:

This class will be devoted towards painting portraits in acrylics. The first three classes will be devoted towards building the skills necessary for painting this subject. These will include proportion, value, underpainting, glazes, and of course mixing the myriad colours used to portray skin. The final two classes will be devoted towards working on a more in depth portrait on canvas.

Students will be asked to paint from subjects of their choosing. On the first day of class students are asked to bring an 8”x10” (approx.) portrait image to work from that focusses on the face. Please bring two copies of this image, one in black-and-white and one in full colour. Scott will also have a couple of samples if students are unable to get the images in time.

This class builds off of the skills covered in the Acrylic Level 2 classes with Jess and adds more room for including your own interests and personal artistic pursuits.  If you’ve taken a couple of Jess’s level 2 classes, you’ll be perfectly suited to expand your painting skills in this class with Scott! (Even if you haven’t taken a class with Jess, but have a bit of experience OR have taken the Very Beginner workshop, you will be perfectly suited to this exploration of Portraits!)

Please note this class is limited to 6 students so you will get plenty of individualized instruction and attention. All supplies are included, too!

Covid protocols:

  • Students (and instructors) will be required to wear a mask at all times during the class.
  • Please use hand sanitizer or wash hands with soap and water upon entry to studio
  • Instructor will go over tool safety and protocols during the first class

“Wonderful place to make art! Everyone is really helpful and the atmosphere encourages a sense of fun which really helps you feel like you can create! Just the right amount of support from our teacher to feel like you know what to do but still have space to explore your own ideas. The yummy cookies help too ;)” – Zoë Baker
