ADAPTABLE ACRYLICS: A Painter’s Primer with Tara Berkebile

Acrylic Painting Ah Haa Art School Telluride

Acrylic is the perfect medium for beginning painters (and fun for every level). Both durable and versatile, acrylic paint is water soluble when wet, so it dries fast and requires no solvents. Unlike oil paint, acrylics are easy to wipe off, layer or simply cover up while still allowing you to mix unique colors, incorporate glazes and build richly colorful paintings. In this class, we will learn basic color theory, color mixing, design/composition and the straightforward process of, well… painting! We will work from life to do a few fast series of paintings and from drawings and/or photographs for a longer, finished piece. This is a relaxed, easy going class for anyone wishing to begin, get back into or expand their technical skills. All materials are included.
