Like any endeavor in life, the end result ends up more successful when the foundation is solid. One cannot build a house before they learn how to use all of the tools required to build it. So it is with learning how to paint. Acrylic Fundamentals will provide the foundation for students to move ahead and reach their goal of a quality finished product in subsequent classes.

The practice of keeping a sketchbook is a fun and effective way to discover your personal style, build skills, and experiment with ideas. Through classwork, field trips, and prompts students will develop and refine their observational skills and creative process. A sketchbook practice can be spontaneous and imperfect, with the intention of being an exploration and not a finished product.
