Classes start November 2, 2021, and will take place on both YouTube and Facebooks on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sundays, at 1 pm EDT until November 30, 2021. Every class will be at the easiest beginner level with a focus of helping first time artists. Not only will you learn the beginner basics about acrylic, but it is my goal that by the end of the course, you will have the fundamental set of skills you can build on and, at the same time, unlock your creative potential. Classes will be pre recorded live streams to help us schedule and to allow me to be present in chat during all classes to answer your questions.

The course consists of an introduction and 17 classes which will introduce concepts and skills needed for first time acrylic painters of all ages. Extra resources will be provided from the The Art Sherpa website, www.theartsherpa.com.

Although students must provide their own art materials, I designed the series using the minimal basic art supplies for acrylic painting.

If you have really wanted to begin painting but did now know where to start, this course is perfect for you. Perhaps you have been painting for a while but never really got the opportunity to learn the basics. This is still the course for you.

Buyers tip. I am using the Primary Abstract by Sennelier Set of paint - there are other primary sets out their and many painting companies will give you the courtesy of having at least 3 paints they call primaries in their paint line - You can use differently then myself but it will mean there are slight differences in our color mixes. So dont miss the color mixing class!! I have been painting online for a while I know what to do about these challenges.
