Acrylic: Remedies for Painting Problems


Wednesdays, October 11, 18, & 25   10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Instructor: Randy Hayashi

Are you an acrylic painter who is looking for an objective eye to help make your painting better? Are you stuck in a rut with your painting process and are looking for a fresh approach? Acrylics are a fast-drying, water-based media, which makes for easy clean up and versatility in application. However, acrylics can be frustrating because they dry quickly. Learn how to make this feature work for you instead of fighting it.

Bring paintings you're working on or start some new ones! This drop-in class is for any acrylic painter who is looking for some tips and tricks to improve composition and paint handling. The instructor will guide you in your creative process, show you a few techniques on your request, answer your questions, and be your mentor. These drop-in classes offer a relaxed social approach to learning and improving one's artistic techniques. As an excellent painter who has also trained as a teacher Randy is a great source of acrylic assistance.
