Ready to create a bright, bold acrylic painting? Sign up for my workshop!

NEXT PAINTING WORKSHOP: Desert Scene – Sunday, December 10th, 2017

TIME: 12.30 -4.00 pm

LOCATION: Anastasia Mak Art Studio, 5006 N Hermitage, Chicago IL
COST: $65 (all materials included)

Immerse yourself in the reds and oranges of the West! Deserts are enchanting, diverse, and full of vivid surprises. This is a perfect subject for combining realistic elements with fictional splotches of extra color, and intuitive brush strokes.

In this single day, 3.5 hour workshop, you will create an acrylic painting of the desert landscape. You will be guided on underpainting, composition and sketch development, layers, contrast, vibrating colors, and differences between rocky land and sky textures. For reference, we will be using photos from the lands of Arizona and Utah.

You will work alongside the artist (that’s me!) as she paints in front of you while explaining her techniques. As most of my workshops, this class is designed to unlock the creative talent of people with ALL skill levels, so if you have not painted before, have no fear! You will walk away understanding how acrylic painting is constructed, what techniques are used to make the colors “pop”, and take home your very own original creation! As always, this workshop will encourage you to create a unique painting, instead of merely copying artist’s work.

Canvas size for this workshop will be 12×12

Maximum class size – 8 people
