In this class students learn the delightful technique of impasto (thick) acrylic painting using palette knives with the occasional assistance of brushes. This fun and loose approach is enjoyable for students of all levels. Demonstrations and one-on-one help sessions guide students through the process, from laying on the first skin of paint, to building up form and the refinement phase. Finished paintings are often described as luscious, or gem-like when the textures are illuminated by a light source. For the best experience, please have supplies ready for the first day of class.
