In Acrylic Impressionism, it is the feeling of the finished piece that is important. Using photo references and still life objects, we will be working to capture the visual impression or feeling of the moment vs. achieving an accurate depiction.
Painting with small brushes and palette knives, we’ll experience an outpour of emotion and energy in our work and experiment with the shifting effect of light and color.

Whatever subject matter you like to draw or paint - spinning will free your subconscious abilities! Spinning refers to turning the paper, canvas, metal, wood or other surface at 90 degree angles while applying the oil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil, charcoal or other medium. Taking your favorite work of art and hanging it upside down may reveal an entirely new piece.

Cadena, Elizabeth

In this messy, experimental class, we’ll explore the fun and very addicting technique of “dirty pours” and “flip cup” acrylic pours. The results look like marble or even planets, when poured onto circular supports. Learn how to create “cells” within your pours.

This class includes a ton of paints, pouring mediums and several supports (canvases, etc.), and you will finish the day with at least 3 small finished pieces. All supplies included!
