BEG. AND INTER. ACRYLIC and BEG. WATERCOLOR CLASSES
Beginning Acrylic and Watercolors Classes are generally two hours in length. The class encompasses how to work with acrylics and/or watercolors, learn brush techniques, learn composition, read colors for highlighting and shading, and much more. Cost is $25 per class. Subjects offered are landscape, seascape, floral, and still life.
For simplication purposes, teacher's art supplies will be used during the first class. If student continues with more classes, he/she will provide their own supplies. A list will be provided by the teacher on what needs to be purchased.
I haven't updated this page in ions, but I now have three students--Susan, Eva, and Jerri.
Susan started last year and she had no experience in painting, she never held a paint brush before. She has painted everything I have given her and has listened to everything I have said. Her growth has been amazing. Her projects--the three giraffes, and the native man with steely eyes won 1st place at the Jefferson County Fair. She is now learning how to paint with watercolors. Kudos, Susan, for a job well done!!!
Eva is my neighbor who is so talented--she loves to garden, is a great cook, and she loves to laugh. She loves to paint and is another fast learner--she painted of a seahorse and did a collage of sailboats. She won Best of Show/1st Place and an Honorable Mention at the Cllalam County Fair. She has two ongoing projects--the Palace of Fine Arts and the other one is The Day of the Dead. Kudos, Eva, for a job well done!!!
Jerri has been coming to me for about 6 months. She is an awesome realistic painter who paints oils and is learning how to work with acrylics. She is detailed oriented, and I am pushing her to go outside her comfort zone. She initially painted on 9X12 canvases and now she is working on a 16X20 aquaboard using a pallet knife, encouraging her to take the colors in the background and add them to the foreground so the viewer's eyes will move around the painting; and finally encourage her to lighten up colors so that the subject matter will "pop." My goal is to have her start entering her works in exhibits. Kudos, Jerri, for a job well done!!!

Roger latest completed piece
Roger took watercolor lessons, and he is now painting on his own and continually grows with each painting he completes. He comes from a background in engineering which involves control and precision, and his working with watercolors has been a big adjustment, but he now lets the watercolors work on their own. I'm so proud of the progress he's making.

I had two students today--Evelyn, grandmother, and Savannah, eight-year-old grand-daughter. Neither has worked with acrylics before, but they did a wonderful job. Hope they continue painting--they definitely have talent.
KUDOS FOR JOB WELL DONE
