Acrylic Textures & Technical Know-How!

Wednesdays, 1-4 PM. May 4, 11, 18, & 25, June 1, 8, (Six Weeks)
Instructor: Jean Kellogg (About Jean Kellogg)

There are certain textures that can make, or break a painting...a few of these can be found in Flowers,
Feathers, Foliage, Fur, Fins and Hair! Of course, there are many more, but having an idea of how to
execute them successfully can make a great difference in expressing your subject matter.

To do them well takes practice; a knowledge of which tools to use is essential! Which brush will best
create the texture you desire? Which medium? How should it be applied? What stroke technique will
convey it best? What substrate should you paint on - paper? Canvas? Gessoed panel? Canvas paper?

These are only some of the many questions for which determined students seek answers - answers that
can be found in this class! Come share in the quest for acrylic texture information with other painting
explorers, and see what a difference the technical know-how can make in your artwork!

Supplies: Basic Acrylic Set, plus 1 tube Payne's Gray; basic synthetic brush assortment/varied tip types, plastic cup, paper towels, at least 4 white pre-gessoed canvases, size 8”x10” or 11”x14” or 16”x20”
(May substitute 1 pad canvas paper for canvases); 1 small bottle of Liquitex gloss medium/varnish,
small spray bottle for water, and styrofoam plates for palettes.
*Also, please  bring a blow dryer to facilitate speedy drying.
*Additional types of brushes, media, etc will be provided by instructor for the class exercises. Hence, a
one-time $10 materials fee will be due at the first class meeting.

Tuition $135 for six weeks (18 hours)
