All Level Oil and Acrylic Painting           

Johns Creek Arts Center 

Bring your ideas to life from thumbnail sketches to a finished work of art using oil or acrylic media. This class emphasizes planning in painting through composition, studies, as well as developing strong drawings, and gathering reference materials before the start of a painting. We also focus on brushwork, color mixing and application. Because everyone's needs are different, supplies will be discussed during the first class. Bring your sketch pad and your ideas.

By recommendation or referral only

This class is an excellent platform for teenagers seriously seeking to develop their artistic talents for creative careers. Teens create original works of art from concept to completion in a relaxed and supportive setting. Working at their own pace, students have the option to choose from several different mediums. Students develop concept sketches, find visual references, and complete a solid drawing of the subject of their choosing before proceeding to the final art. Media options include pastel, watercolor, acrylic, oil, charcoal and digital media such as Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. Many drawing and painting techniques are addressed as well as professional practices and portfolio development and presentation.
