Whether you are experienced or new to painting, Jacquelyn will awaken your inner artist. Two or three week projects explore colour, composition and techniques using acrylic paints. Projects use primarily acrylics, but can include different mediums, paper collage elements and fabric on a variety of supports and surfaces. Landscapes and abstracts are explored – you choose your favourite. Develop some new ideas while you evolve your own style. Follow along with the assignments or bring your own work in progress. Materials list will be supplied. Open to all levels.
