Introduction to Acrylic Painting

Instructor: Shannon Lester
Location: Rotary Centre for the Arts, Harmony Honda Painting & Drawing Room
Designed for first time painters or passionate hobbyists, this painting class is about building the skills required to paint with confidence on your own. Acrylics are versatile and easy to work with, and because of their fast drying time allow for quick learning. This class will focus on representational painting such as painting people, animals or places. Students will chose their own reference and will be guided to create a finished work of art over a six week period. Learn about layering, shading and highlighting to create shape and depth; and different brush techniques to build the skills required to make beautiful artwork! Also incorporated into this course is brush care, colour mixing and an introduction to acrylic mediums. Shannon Lester is a local artist who holds a Master of Fine Arts degree and has been painting and teaching for over twenty years.
