Project Description

Your assignment for this class is to experiment with acrylic paint, and share your findings in Your Project section of this class.

What did you discover?

Which ones were your favorite and which one didn’t you like as much?

How would you like to apply these acrylic backgrounds and textures in a future project?

I encourage you to take the findings from your experiment a step further and create a finished piece, such as a mixed media piece, a collage, a greeting card, a page in your sketchbook, or any other piece you’d like to make. Share a photo of your creation in Your Project down below.

If you have any questions, leave a comment in the community section of the class. I’m here to help!

Happy painting!
