Acrylic Painting

January 9, 2019  6:00-8:00pm

Liz Frankland will demonstrate how to create a scene that is loose but realistic in style, and how to find the point where detail can be expressed accurately yet abstract. Students are asked to bring 2-3 inspirational images to work from and will leave at the end of the class with their own painting. And don’t worry about a cluttered photo! Frankland will help students navigate what to highlight and minimize in the final work. Wednesday evenings, five weeks.  Register  HERE. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class.
