Acrylic Painting 2 – Shape, Unity and Matisse

Acrylic Painting 2 – Shape, Unity and Matisse

Class Description:
During the first class we will simplify objects into basic shapes to create a visually pleasing composition. In week two, we will focus on creating unity in our paintings. Unity is the feeling that all parts of the painting work together. We will explore some techniques from Henri Matisse in week 3, while touching on some interesting art history. Finally in the last two classes, you will create your own painting based on your chosen reference photo. We will work together to break it down, edit it, then work through the painting process.

Enjoy a coffee or cup of tea and some baked goodies while you practice skills that can be applied to all of your future work.

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!
