Acrylic Painting 101

 I have changed the time to Sunday, August 25th at 2pm due to some requests for a class on the weekend.

This week we will be doing a painting that could be done in acrylic or watercolor. Please see the link below for the painting. Bring your medium of choice and we will experiment how the two work differently.


Please bring the following for the class:
Primed, framed canvas not bigger than 14" or watercolor paper

acrylic paint/watercolor paint

paint brushes: a few different sizes ranging from wide to fine.

pencil

eraser
palatte
rag
apron (or wear clothes you would not mind staining)

If any of you would like to me get the canvas/brushes for you, please email me. I would be happy to help.

I will update on the venue as we get closer to the date. It will depend on how many are attending.

This should be a lot of fun! I look forward to seeing you there!

    Ask a question, share something, or leave a comment...Thanks May -I'm thinking someone from the other group probably saw or heard something-no response yet from the park people.I think all the paintings turned out well & we all learned more about perspective-thanks Gopa.

    Thanks, Juli-I was engrossed as well & with all the noise from the other people we wouldn't have heard anything. I'm just glad I wasn't parked the other way around or I wouldn't be able to open the driver's door.

    MaryEllen, I too am sorry about what happened to your car. Kacie nor I saw or heard anything so not sure when it happened. I was so engrossed in our art work that I was pretty oblivious to our surroundings ;-)

    Someone hit my car in the parking lot during class. I didn't notice it until a little while after everyone left. I drive a silver 2006 Chevy Impala which was parked directly across from us on the opposite side of the road parallel to it facing south. I was hit on the passenger front door so bad I doesn't open & so hard it knocked stuff around on the dashboard. Since it was a hit & run, I made a police report & I will be trying to find out who rented the pavilion since it was likely someone in that group that hit me. Please contact me if anyone saw anything in case I have to pay my deductible & can find another driver to get reimbursement from. At least I am carrying collision on this car. [masked]

      (CONTINUED) I didn't smell any food, so doubt if that was their purpose there & they were all cleared out very shortly after you left--probably to go eat dinner--so were drinking on empty stomachs. Other groups having the shelters rented will likely be a problem with any park shelter on the weekends for the next few weeks. I know that alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the Livonia parks unless you buy a permit with your shelter rental--then they will be watching you. By 5pm it was as peaceful & sparse with people as it was during most of our evening classes. So maybe Sunday early evening would be another option.

      (CONTINUED-2) I have your tablecloth & those flyers I spoke about from Hobby Lobby in my bag with painting water in my car, so won't forget to bring them next time--unless you have a drawing class. And thanks to whoever left those small water bottles to hold down the tablecloth or I wouldn't have been able to continue painting due to the wind. Also after almost everyone had cleared out EMS was called right after I called for the police for a woman who passed out just south along the river-don't know if she was part of that large group. So there was a lot of excitement that day.

    Wow--this one is fantastic! I can't wait.

    I have changed the date to a Sunday due to a few requests. I hope that does not affect plans.

    Do you know what we will be painting yet? You know they locked the bathrooms sometime during the last class so I couldn't use them on the way out. Maybe someone should call about it. I bet they're supposed to stay unlocked while the park is open. I was the last one to leave--only a few minutes after everyone else, but there were some other people still in the park as well & at least 20 more minutes before it started to get dark.

      Let me find out about the bathroom. And I will be posting a piece soon!
