What you'll learn in this acrylic painting class:

Come join Leighton as she demonstrates how to paint places, whether a landscape, beach scene, or building, that has meaning to you. She will show you how to use value, texture, and brush strokes to create different areas to transform a photo into a painting by your hand. 

Day 1: Introduction and grid drawing of photograph. Students will learn how to grid and draw their photographed location on a 12 inch by 12 inch gallery canvas.  

Day 2: Review color theory, value, and strokes. Begin painting. Leighton will review ways to use light, value, and brush strokes through paint to give the illusion of form and depth, She will help students start to fill in their painting one section a time. 

Day 3 and 4: Continue painting and complete! Students will paint along side each other with guidance from Leighton.

  • Participants should be ready to submit two or three photos of a place/places that have meaning to them about a week before the first class. 
  • Paintings will be completed on canvases no larger than 12 inches in width or length due to the time length of the class. 
  • All materials will be provided!
  • Dress for a mess! Though messiness varies from class to class, it's best to be careful since we are not able to guarantee materials will not get on or stain clothing.
