Acrylic Painting - Children

Acrylic Painting Class for 4th Grade through High School Students

Painting provides an immense beneficial effect on the human psychic and body alike. It sparks creativity, engages imagination, and provides a calm repetitive technique that establishes rules, lines and patterns, an oasis of relaxation and control in a chaotic world.

Getting started with acrylics requires a few preliminary steps: finding the proper paints, the desired work surface, and deciding on the design path you want to take. This course will take students on a journey through acrylic painting by exploring techniques involving applying paint, mixing the right colors and tones, layering as well as basic art principles like composition and design. Students will develop a reference book of techniques on canvas panels that they can refer to when creating their final painting on a stretched canvas.
