In teaching her class, Acacia says" this thorough,  friendly 8 week class is a perfect start for any new painter, or a great repertoire builder for the intermediate artist.  I use a combination of tested and proven academic principals. My own self taught techniques were gathered over 15 years of creating animal art to improve and refine your animal drawing and painting skills.

We will cover everything from anatomy, form, and perspective, to materials and how to select them, to color mixing and values, choosing references, using layers to build dimension and much more.  With ample side by side easel time and a group critique at the conclusion. Join me in November to take your animal painting to the next level!
