The Acrylics Class

A Detailed study of Artist's Acrylics, their history, and application.

This course will give you detailed information about artists acrylics and how they can be applied to your own artwork or calligraphy. 

My painting techniques with acrylics are used to create depths of layers and textures with both text and imagery. The variety of the types of Artists Acrylics and their associated Mediums, Gels, Pastes and Grits can be overwhelming. In this course, you will learn the background, history, development and application of acrylics and gain ideas of the possibilities for your own artwork.

This course is an excerpt of a larger course: The Layered Journal. The Acrylics Class is for those who may not want to invest in a comprehensive course on techniques, but also want to know detailed information about acrylics and how they might be integrated and applied to their own artwork or calligraphy.
