Spend a couple of fun days exploring the unique attributes of acrylic. Vibrant colors. Rich textures. Expressive brushwork. All are easily achieved in acrylic. Below is an abbreviated agenda of both days.

Class begins at 9:30 am ending at 4:30 pm with a one hour lunch break. 

Day 1 of this workshop students will work from life outdoors.  Spencer will demonstrate his approach to designing, developing and following through to the finished painting. Afterwards, students will then be unleashed to implement what they have learned while Spencer circulates among them assisting any that have questions. 

Day 2 begins with a recap of the previous day. Spencer will do a brief plein air demo to solidify students' understanding, followed by students beginning their second painting implementing concepts learned on the first day. 

This class is appropriate for all skill levels. You will love this workshop as you experience the vibrancy of this medium.  

Throughout the workshop, we will discuss composition and design and the role they play in a successful painting. 

LUNCH - Students are also welcome to bring their own lunch or visit a nearby restaurant
