Rod Moore's Acrylic Painting class is the most thorough and in depth class I've taken on Skillshare! He does an excellent job of walking us through everything, step by step so it's easy to understand. Highly recommend!
Excellent course! As a self-taught acrylic painter, I have been looking for someone that would thoroughly teach all aspects of acrylic painting. This course simplifies what most people find overwhelming at first but still challenges you. Thank you!
Great class for those who are either new to painting or looking to transition from drawing to painting. This class teaches few art "fundamentals" in theory, instead focusing on practical exercises in order to refine one's technique. If you are looking for a beginer to intemidiate class that foucuses on practical technique this is a great class to take. Ps - a great suplementry to this is Thomas fluharty's Drawing fundementals (look it up), it will build alot on the practical skills learned here.
