Free Art Class

Is the weather keeping you inside this week? Is it blazing hot out, downpouring, or is there a blizzard outside? Grab some canvas and some paint and come paint some chickens with me!

For this class, we will paint a portrait of three young chickens in acrylic. For this project you will need:

  • a canvas, I will be using a round stretched canvas. Any size is fine, but I will be working small (similar in size to a 6×8″ canvas)
  • acrylic paint in these colors
    • Yellow Ocher
    • Cadmium Yellow Hue
    • Phthalo Blue
    • Brilliant Red
    • Titanium White
    • Paynes Gray
    • Ivory Black
    • You may also find a green and a brown (burnt umber) helpful
  • Brushes in various sizes, large flat, small round, medium-small filbert, and a small detail brush
  • water
  • rag
  • reference photo (attached)02f1f541.jpg

Helpful but not necessary: 

  • Easel
  • additional brushes
  • brush soap
