Acrylics, Adult

Thursday, January 14 – March 04, 2021

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Instructor: Carolyn Rose – Abernathy Arts Center

Join us while we learn about the basic techniques of acrylic painting in this all levels step by step class. We will apply the fundamentals of color and light to a variety of subjects. Learn the proper use of brushes, pigments, and preparation of surfaces.

Adult 18+

Supplies:

Paints: Titanium White, Ivory Black, Cadmium Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Windsor or Dioxine Violet, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Turquoise, Sap or Light Green, Viridian Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna
Optional: Orange, Permanent Rose, Phylo Turquoise, Burnt Umber
*Palette: My preference is a plastic Masterson Palette holder with white palette paper that fits inside. If you choose gray paper to fit inside the holder, that is up to you. Palette paper with a thumb hole in it for acrylic painters can get messy.
*Ten Canvases (your choice)
Either 11 x 14 or 11 x 18 (I would not go smaller than that) It would be good to tone the canvases prior to work with light coat of neutral paint. This is not required. Towards the end of the sessions, we will be using two canvases that will be toned in black.
*Brushes: Since this work will predominantly be smaller in scale, you won’t need Size 10 brushes at all, except perhaps to tone the canvases. Filberts and Flathead brushes from Size 3 to Size 7 will be fine. You will need a good Fan Brush to smooth some edges.
* Acrylic Medium (this can make the paint smooth better and is less likely to dry so quickly)
* Two containers for water. Your water needs to be cleaned as we paint. Two containers can save you time.
* paper towels
*Optional: an Easel – a table Easel is perfectly fine and so is a stand up full length Easel. There are plenty of people who paint with the canvas flat. This choice is yours. But I do recommend an Easel. It’s better for your back.
