3 Surprising Tips!

Before you sign up for a canvas painting class, I've got 3 Surprising Tips for you!

I want to help make sure you're successful and have fun in whichever art class you choose!

Tip #1 Be Willing to be a Learner
 
We can teach you ALL the techniques and theory for canvas painting & drawing but if you're not willing to:​
  • ask questions
  • make mistakes
  • not know something
...you're not going to be successful and might as well not take a class.
(we want your class to be fun for you!)
#2 You're not going to like everything you make.
No one likes everything they make.
And even if you don't like the end result, you learned something. It was totally worthwhile.

#3 Art is actually more about SEEING than anything else.
Beyond all the techniques and theories, learning to paint on canvas or draw is about seeing differently.
  • Seeing the color of a shadow
  • Seeing the shapes in an object
  • Seeing the layers in a picture
You're actually training your brain to think differently...so be willing to give it a little time ❤️

How to Paint Trees on

Canvas with Acrylics

One of the best things about painting on canvas is the ability to layer.

To paint trees, we use layers of paint and slight color changes to create a 3-dimensional effect.

Cross-Hatch Blending 

Acrylic on Canvas

This is my favorite blending technique and I love to start my canvas painting this way.

It provides more texture and a painterly look to any subject that I really LOVE!

I teach all kinds of fun painting techniques like this in my Abstract Painting class.
