In her Palette Knife Acrylic Painting Class, Agnes' students will discover their hidden ability with creativity while playing with palette knife in combination with a brush using acrylic paint on stretched canvas exploring how to create buildings, landscapes, water flowers and abstract art while the paint is still wet on your canvas.
Creating artwork on canvas with a palette knife is an interesting way of expressing thoughts or painting an image of buildings, trees, water, sky or the home back yard or going abstract and layering by splashing paint on canvas and moving it around mixing it by using palette knife technique while the paint is still wet. It is a technique that can be learned by beginners or emerging artists if you are interested in playing with colours and unfolding abilities of creativity with new tools. By the end of each three-hour class, you can take your art piece home to enjoy. Everyone is welcome.
Materials needed for the class:
Palette knives will be supplied for the workshop you only need to bring your canvas and acrylic paint or if you have oil paint even better.
