For students new to the medium or for those who want to expand their expressive repertoire. No previous painting experience required! Try a new technique every week and use it in class while you paint from photos or ideas. We'll cover the use of texture-making additives, direct and indirect transfers, masks, gel printing with acrylics, and acrylic washes and pours. There will be 1.5 hrs of painting time in every class. A $10 materials fee payable to the instructor ensures you can experience new media without having to spend money to buy large amounts. Starts Wednesday, Jan 16, from 1-4 pm at the Richmond Art Center.
