Find out why acrylic is the hottest trend in making art. Become familiar with the techniques of this exciting medium. Beginners to intermediates will learn to use stronger values, better composition, and more dynamic color to give your work strength, depth and interest. Learn to use these expressive mediums to bring light and life to your paintings, and most importantly, bring sense of self to your work.
