MESSAGE FROM KATE:
So glad you are reading this—it means I may be meeting you soon! If you've never painted before, don’t worry. Everyone starts somewhere. Each session has an “instruction” phase and a painting phase. Here are some of the things we will cover: 12 techniques with acrylic paint, different tools in addition to brushes, the two most popular forms of texture, basic (or advanced if you are ready) color mixing, how to use glaze to make acrylic paint look like oil paint, and how to finish a piece to get it ready to hang in your home or enter into a show. Please check out my material list and come join this growing community of artists.
