Acrylic Painting Class
The second acrylic painting course that I taught at the Worcester County Arts Council was much larger--seven students I believe. Again, the classes were one evening a week for six weeks. We had a lot of fun experimenting with painting techniques (Sue pictured above) and attempting some abstract painting (Ken pictured below).
And here are the results of the Monet Color-Mixing Challenge from the last night of class. Each student received a piece of paper canvas with a sliver of a Monet landscape painting in the middle. The challenge was to imagine and create the rest of the painting on both sides, matching the paint colors and brush strokes well enough that the printed strip would be camoflauged. More difficult than it sounds. I think the students impressed themselves with the results.
