Title: Impressionist Style Acrylic Painting Classes


To reserve your spot:

Instructor: Aimée Harbin

Class Description: Using portions of impressionist styled paintings as inspiration, we will try our hand at masters’ style of applying the paint as well as study their use of color to give the viewer the “impression” of the scene or objects.

Aimée is an art educator and has years of experience teaching. Some work outside the class will enhance your class experience.

New students will begin Impressionist Style acrylic painting. Previous Thursday Morning students can continue in this class or join the Monday Afternoon classes (please let us know which.)

      • bring several – small, medium and larger: ¼”, ½” and ¾”)
    • Round brushes
      • Small, around #3, medium about #5 – #6, and about #8. Also bring other sizes if you have them (small detail brush)
  • Canvas
    • Canvas 11″x14″ (or close to this size)

        Look for true colors. If the label reads,”Hue”,  it is not going to give you the best result for these color studies. Example: a light shade of cobalt contains white. It won’t work for the first 4 classes.
