In Acrylic impressionism it is the feeling of the finished piece that is important. Each week we will be learning about the style of a different Impressionist and, using photo references and still life objects, paint in a similar style. We'll use a combination of brushes and palette knives to experiment with washes and glazing as well as building up paint adding texture. And, we'll learn how to work wet paint on wet using a slow dry medium. Lots of experimentation and lots of fun!

Students must have a basic knowledge of acrylic painting for this class.

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.

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!

Beard, Nathan D

Learn how to transform and interpret observations of nature into inspired works of art! Instructor Nathan Beard will lead you on a step-by-step process beginning with a walk through Highlands Hammock to take reference photos for paintings and drawings. Students will be asked to digitally alter those photos to any degree they wish and then complete paintings/drawings over the course of 6 Saturdays. Students should be prepared to experiment with several different media. This course is excellent for students wanting to experiment with abstraction that is grounded in representation. Prerequisites will include basic painting and drawing classes and access to a basic photo-editing computer program at home.
