Painting 101: Basics for Beginners - PASADENA: Feb (Fri) Grades 5-12th

Summary: This step-by-step acrylic painting course is designed to help ignite a student's passion for painting and was created for beginners. The course includes the black & white image to be used as a clear blueprint to help ensure a successful and enjoyable outcome. They will learn how to transfer an image to a canvas via freehand through a "gridding method" that is commonly used to help beginners learn how transfer any image they desire proportionally and accurately from the originals. The tools they will learn will guide them to create their own masterpieces in the future based off of imagery they resonate with. There is also room for creative freedom as they are allowed to change their color palette, change the placement of the animal, add more dimensions, and/or add textures. As you can see in the images, there is a basic application for this project and two different variations for the more advanced/ adventurous artist. The final class will give them options to add metallics and/or pigments to take their piece to another dimensional level. This course was designed to ignite the hunger for painting and build the confidence to want to create more paintings in the future. This method has the ability to get one hooked on the act of creation so you, the parent, can have more free time as they immerse themselves in future creations designed and painted by them.



All supplies will be included: 10x16 canvas, paint palette, easel, paint brushes, paints, and template. *Please have them come dressed in a old shirt to protect their clothes from potential paint spills.
