Acrylic paints are amazing!  Learn about the paint and mediums that are essential to a rich and deep acrylic painting.

Acrylics are wonderful and flexible. It washes up with water, but when it dries, it is a water proof polymer, so wear “painting clothes”.

Beginners: This five-week session of Marcy Wheeler’s Friday Morning Class is focused on showing beginners how to mix colors and play with acrylic paints. The beginners will work in the heart of the class together and will be greeted with fun projects to teach them the ins and outs of color and acrylic paints.

Beginner’s Material Fee is $50. Paid by check or cash to Marcy Wheeler on 1st class meeting. You get to keep the wonderful Golden Paints (5 tubes) and several new and used brushes. Bring some canvas or heavy paper to paint on, and a palette.

Ongoing Students continue on their road as “not quite” beginners, intermediate, and advanced painters, and will be cheering beginners on! Learning continues with individual guidance from Marcy, as usual. We often share our work at the end of the class and learn more about our own work from the other class members. If you are an ongoing student, you are in charge of your own material purchases.

Any Student may make up a missed class in Marcy’s Thursday afternoon class (2:30- 5) in Studio 2. This should be done during the weeks of the class dates.
