This class is delivered online with limited seats for a highly interactive experience with your instructor.
Learn how to paint with acrylics in this 3 hour workshop designed for very beginners! You will be guided through the basics such as paint brush selection, how to mix paint to create the colour you want, and the difference between mediums.
It’s not about the finished product in this class – we will be focusing on techniques and skills that will start you on your acrylic painting journey. After this workshop, you will feel more confident to take Level 2 Acrylic classes or to work on your own paintings at home.
This class will be delivered using an app called Zoom that you will need to download (free). You can participate using your mobile, tablet or desktop. Prior to the class, you will be emailed instructions on how to connect with the classroom.
*Please note – Our goal is to create a highly interactive classroom environment and be able to give personal feedback to each participant. Therefore we ask that only one person attend a class per registration.

Who is this class for:
Focus: Skill Development
This Level 1 class is for students with little or no experience. You will learn the basic skills for use of tools and introduction to the medium.
- Container of water
- Rag or paper towel
- Spray bottle with water – to mist paints
- Swatches of colour *see below
- Palette (or plate, piece of glass, etc)
- Acrylic paints (Red, Blue, Yellow, Black, White)
- Assortment of brushes (large/small, various shapes)
- Heavy paper to paint on (mixed media paper is great)
*Swatches: You will need a few swatches of colour. These are small pieces of paper that are one colour. Look through magazines and cut out areas of FLAT colour. This means it should be one solid colour – no texture or variation. The swatches should be no smaller than ½”x ½”. If you have some house paint swatches, they work wonderfully.
