Acrylic Painting 2 – Colour, Emphasis and Frida Kahlo

Acrylic Painting 2 – Colour, Emphasis and Frida Kahlo

Class Description:
In this session we will focus on the use of colour and emphasis in painting, while using Frida Kahlo’s work to guide us.

In the first class we will look at colour and its importance in painting. We will examine not only Kahlo’s, but other artist’s paintings to see how they have utilized colour to produce rhythm, create a visual path or harmonize an image. We’ll then create our own paintings that focus on the use of colour.

During the second class, we delve into emphasis and explore how different artists use that principle in their paintings. We will then do a project focusing on emphasis ☺

For the third class, we look at a few of Kahlo’s iconic works and students will have the opportunity to learn her techniques while replicating one of her paintings.

In the last two classes, students will bring in their own reference image and we will go over composition, colour choice, editing and image transfer. Students will have the opportunity to work on this painting for a total of 4 hours.

Note – Students that have taken this class with Jess before know that we do NEW projects every session, so you won’t get bored taking this class multiple times!
