Animal paintings with character will be our subject. Spend the day creating imaginative acrylic portraits of animals with attitudes. We'll start out by creating collage layers and building translucent paint layers with subtractive textures. The animal shapes will be introduced next with thoughtful and informative demos. Stencil shapes and more collage bits will add drama and color to finish off your painting.

Students will complete 1 or 2 collage and acrylic works on wood panels.
