About This Class

In this class you will start to learn easy to apply techniques for painting text & letters with acrylics. This is Part One of an extensive course for those interested in adding words to their artwork. This particular class will focus on negative space and why it's so important. I will also cover a few common mistakes most artists make & how to easily avoid them.

Why Is This Class Important?

Because words & text pop up often in subjects. If you enjoy painting cityscapes and still life for example then you know text is part of the subject(s). If you don't have the proper techniques these subjects will look amateurish.

Ready To Get Started?

All you need is a writing utensil, some paint (any color or medium will do), paper and any object with words & text.

FYI, I've attached the demo image in case you would like to use the same one as I did in the class. You can find that in the Class Project downloads.
