READY TO LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF ACRYLIC PAINTING?

Acrylics are perhaps the perfect medium for learning the basic concepts of painting. Accessible by just about everyone, acrylics are clean and easy to use, yet capable of producing well-developed paintings. This makes acrylic painting a clear choice for beginners. Because they are so versatile, acrylic painting techniques are broad and varied - perhaps more so than any other painting medium. This course is designed to cover not only the fundamentals of painting but also specific techniques that lead to success with this delightful medium. Logically sequenced, course modules have been painstakingly crafted to guide absolute beginners to a level of producing quality paintings in a short amount of time.

WANT TO TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF PAINTING?

Perhaps I was like you. When I first started painting with acrylics, I thought it was as simple as adding a few colors to a canvas. I became frustrated when colors muddied. Controlling the brush seemed difficult and painting seemed unattainable. But once I had a grasp of the fundamentals and learned a few simple techniques, my paintings improved dramatically.

  • Are you wanting to apply glazes as the "Old Masters" did?
  • Want to learn how to use gel and fluid mediums to enhance the painting experience?

LEARNING SIMPLIFIED WITH EBOOKS

This course has been designed to accelerate learning by teaching to many different learning styles. Not all of us prefer to learn from watching videos. Some of us prefer to learn from books as well as videos. Each course module includes an illustrated ebook that corresponds with the video.
