I have embarked on a new journey. Following the path of my father, who was an educator, I am now teaching fine arts workshops in acrylic painting. Classes are held at two area Michaels Arts & Crafts stores (Conshohocken and King of Prussia). They are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings and a few Sunday afternoons (see schedule below).
The workshop will address some of the basic principles of color and composition, and will focus on some of the basic techniques of acrylic painting. By the end of each two-hour class, students will have completed a finished painting. Class schedule reflects the rotation of subject matter: Landscape, Floral, Seascape, and Still Life. Students may register for one or several classes.
You can help me get this thing off the ground by spreading the word to any friends you think might be interested. Michaels is offering 40% OFF September and October classes. When you register for a workshop, you will be given a syllabus containing a materials list. There is a kit you can buy which will supply you with the materials needed, but if you already have some brushes and paint, you may use them (although having the proper colors will give best results.)
