Jan/Feb 2017 8 Sessions Abstract Acrylic Class: $140

This entry-level class will help the student become comfortable painting abstractly. The class will focus on color, line and texture, and students will paint an abstract, or semi-abstract painting using acrylic paint, texture devices, and other interesting techniques that will result in a finished product worthy of hanging.

To be prepared on the first day bring:

  •  Bring a canvas, in a standard size: such as 18×24 (smallest), 24×30, 30×30 or 24×36 (largest).

You can choose a canvas that is gallery-wrapped (wide on the side and the canvas wraps around the sides), or a flat or narrow canvas, which will take a frame. To be completely ready and save money, prime your canvas with white, water-based wall paint.

  • Basic acrylic tubes of colors such as: titanium white, ivory black, yellow ochre, vermillion or cadmium red light, phthalo green, ultramarine blue, alizarin crimson, cadmium yellow.
  • Optionally additional colors: burnt sienna, phthalo blue, cobalt blue, paynes gray


  • Several sizes of low-cost, acrylic brushes (ask at the art store), large for backgrounds, medium size(s) and a small brush for detail.
  • Bring a rag, a small container for water, and a palette or plate to mix color.
