Knife Painting with Acrylics

The Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts 19805 W. Capitol Drive Brookfield, WI

Tuesdays June 5-26, 6-8pm

Knife painting allows the artist to loosen up and achieve a more impressionistic look, using thick creamy paint to create vibrant, colorful surfaces. Working from photo and life, students will learn how to handle painting knives in order to achieve unique texture and an impasto surface on their paintings with acrylics. The class will cover techniques in knife manipulation as well as direct painting methods and color observation.
