Jenny Lemons Workshops

Online Workshop 12/3: Beginning Acrylic Painting - Hand Painted Wood Ornaments

In this workshop, we will learn all the basics of painting with acrylic paints, including different blending and layering techniques, and how to compose an image. We will go over the ins and outs of choosing brushes while doing several exercises to get comfortable with the materials. Once everyone is ready, we will paint a set of three wood ornaments! The instructor will guide us through each design, answering questions along the way. 

By the end of class, everyone will leave with the confidence to continue painting with acrylics independently.
