If you like the versatility of acrylic but are frustrated with not getting the results you want, then this online course is for you.

This 3-week online course is designed to help you make a smooth transition to acrylic no matter how much experience you have with the medium. Through painting demos, guided exercises, presentations, group discussions, and critiques, you’ll be able to make important adjustments in your acrylic technique in the following areas:

•       Specific acrylic techniques for blending, mixing colors, and layering;

•       Adopt your techniques from other mediums to acrylic;

•       Use the appropriate materials that are best for you based on your artistic background.

In this online course, we will be painting landscapes and still life using photo references for all painting demos. Wayne will post photo references to the class feed prior to each class. You may use your own similar photo reference for your painting.

His work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries such as the Morris Graves Museum of Art, Triton Museum, Crocker Museum, Lan Su Chinese Garden, History San José, and Guardino Gallery.As an art educator, Wayne specializes in teaching acrylic both in person and online. He has 3 decades of experience working with acrylic and 13 years teaching the medium. His students are artists with diverse skill levels: from someone who has never painted to professional artists who want to refine their acrylic technique or learn a new medium. Wayne’s deep interest in art history is incorporated in both his paintings and how he teaches.
