 Angela will introduce you to the joys of painting with acrylics!

It's not a watercolor, it's not oil paint. Acrylic paints are frustrating and amazing all at the same time! Learning to finesse the paint into doing what you want it to do is part of the goal of this class. Angela will cover how to properly load the brush, how to blend wet paint and how to make dry areas look like they've been blended.  She'll also go into color mixing, how much water to use and when, and what to do if you've made a 'mistake'!  At the end of the workshop, you'll get a handy PDF file with all the points covered in class, so you won't need to worry about taking detailed notes and instead focus on learning and practicing your new skills.
