Acrylic Painter's Toolbox

Bring your expressive potential to life with amazing acrylic art. Experiment with a variety of acrylic mediums and pigments as you work from a different motif in each lesson. Learn essential glazing, drybrush and impasto techniques for paintings that convey depth and possess roundness of color. Achieve rich textures with mediums and grounds, including nepheline gel and iridescent copper for shimmering light effects. Use mixed-media techniques that are ideal for building vibrant surfaces and rendering floral techniques, including stenciling, scumbling and color washing.You’ll even explore layering techniques using medium, to achieve translucent paint layers that recall classical oil paintings! After this class, you’ll have the skills you need to confidently create inspiring acrylic art that is cutting edge and utterly beautiful.


What's New

UPCOMING WORKSHOP! I have a great new workshop coming up in September. It's called "Come Paint with Us!" and is a collaboration between my friend and fellow acrylic painter Lori Richards. Lori and I will be working on the premise of combining various acrylic painting processes with detailed materials information, in a loose, inspirational environment. We are offering space for up to twelve people, for two days (September 26-27th), that will be taking place in Kingston, Ontario, at the Tri-Art factory. Lots of free materials to work with!
