Painting Compositions: Acrylic & Watercolor
Painting Compositions is an online course that will explore 2D media with an emphasis on acrylic and watercolor techniques. Learn to make your drawings and sketches into a composition of your creation! Explore your ideas through layering color, surface, and dimension.
Layering Paint + Embroidery
Combine watercolors and basic embroidery techniques to create a texturally rich artwork full of depth and atmosphere. We will begin by tracing or drawing a desired image and transferring it to our fabric, then using watercolor to create a colorful base layer. Multiple embroidery stitches will be taught and demonstrated to add detail, outlines, depth, and contrast on top of the dry paint.
Portraiture Through Still Life
Still lifes can be used to create highly expressive and personal messages. Using found objects from your own world, create a still life that represents a person: yourself, or someone you know well. Use acrylic paints to bring life and personality to this symbolic portrait. We will use color relationships to create depth and mood, as well as basic painting techniques to enhance surface quality.
