Loosen Up & Have Fun with Acrylics (Jan-Feb)

Class is Full!

Levels: All Levels

Offered: 6 Monday afternoons, starting 1/6/2020, 1:00pm-3:30pm

Instructor: Carrie Clayden

Location: Santa Cruz Art League

Painting from the heart and loosening up are fundamentals of this class. We work fast and loose, layering our canvas with color, blocking in shapes, and adding definition to create beautiful masterpieces. I want to introduce you to the FUN of paint, we will use spray bottles and drip, splat, brush, even use our hands to create magic. We work on several canvases at a time, producing much work. The more you make, the better the results. I teach negative shape painting, complimentary color, value, composition, dry brush, and much more. Themes change every session. I intend on implementing much of my recent France residency in the New Year. Many students repeat the class as it gives them a valuable critique of their work, and time and space to commit to a regular art practice. Most important, I teach that ANYONE can paint, and when we have FUN, we paint our best work.
