Painting with acrylics is rewarding, versatile and fun.  Native Oklahoma artist Thomas Stotts teaches his personal techniques used to create the unique landscapes and structures in his paintings. Through instructor demonstration, lecture, and individual practice, students learn the characteristics of acrylics, composition, perspective, distance, depth, light, shadows and color. Learn to manipulate the paint brush in varied ways to gain new painting effects and  work with  “washes” to create a “dreamy, atmospheric” look that is very popular. Whether a beginner or intermediate, enjoy growing as an artist in this class. Instructor: Tom Stotts  Supply List
