About the Instructor:

Wayne Jiang is an acrylic realist painter. Combining the aesthetic of 17th century Baroque paintings and the composition of modern documentary photography, his works have been described as the contemporary interpretations of Van Eyck, Vermeer, and Hopper.

Wayne specializes in teaching acrylic. He has 26 years of experience working with acrylic and more than a decade teaching with the medium.
