JENNIFER BOWMAN
GET EXCITED ABOUT ACRYLIC PAINTING
JUNE 1-3
$250

"My goal is to get people excited about painting."

This class is aimed at the intermediate student. It is my desire to create a positive and joyful atmosphere that nourishes the development of each artist's special talents and perceptions. I will begin each day with a demonstration. In my class, we will explore color, value, composition and light. Using each of these elements we will sculpt three-dimensional elements using two-dimensional form. We will be working on a supplied pre-textured surface for the first day. Starting with layered glazes, wet-into-wet and topping it off with palette knife techniques at the end of day three.

Acrylics are wonderful for adding dramatic color choices and really working the contrast of complimentary colors.

Day One: Learn about paint and the respective qualities; experiment with color mixing using wet into wet washes and layered glazes. We will learn about opposites and how they make a good painting work.

The first day's warm-up boards will be pre-textured for immediate painting and I will supply additional texture for the second canvas for the next day's class.

In today's class we will learn to see items in geometric form, simplifying them to their basic shapes. Using a strong light source, we will learn to create three-dimensional qualities on two-dimensional paper. We will learn about the color wheel and how to mix/make colors. We will work on composition and its importance in balancing your image. Using concepts about rhythm, shapes and color you will be able to control the focal point of your painting.

Day Two: Analyzing colors to see the cool and warm hues will be the topic today. Acrylic is a great medium for those that like to change their minds - because you can put light colors over the top of dark colors! This process allows you to add highlights and corrections to previously painted areas.

Day Three: After an additional painting demo of heavy paintbrush stroke techniques, we will use the built-up palette knife stroke to add abstract qualities to our work.
Values will be emphasized. Are your paintings weak and nondescript? Is your subject not popping off the page? We will push you past your threshold of wimpy painting and elevate you to a new bold and exciting level.
