Landscapes & Cityscapes in Acrylic

Capture the light and beauty of nature or the dynamic rhythm and energy of the urban environment through acrylic painting! We will focus on the concepts of light, color and composition to convey meaning. Students will learn to create an intimate sense of place through observation and the use of photographs. This class is open to intermediate level students who have taken Painting Fundamentals in Acrylic.
