Designed to introduce students to oil and acrylic painting methods, this comprehensive workshop will provide a framework in structural drawing, compositional strategies, color theory, and paint application. Through demonstrations, Leonie will illustrate her very easy and unique technique. You can expect to create at least one finished painting. This workshop is open to novices in oil or acrylic paint.

For the sake of time, we will only be working with acrylics.
