Learn the absolute basics of Acrylic painting. Get comfortable with your tools and the process of painting. Lovejoy will help you with blending, brush pressure, strengthen your observation skills, and start the basics of learning to see the value scale. You will learn how practice improves your skills and comfort level. Receive super positive support, encouragement, and constructive steps to progress your skills. Lovejoy is a teacher with 20 years of experience while living up to her name. Lovejoy will set you up with weekly painting objectives and offer feedback on advancing your skills 1 painting at a time. Within a matter of a few months, your confidence in your news skills will grow exponentially. You will learn how to look at an image you want to paint and break down each component into simple steps to accomplish. Just by going through the process of painting, you are successful. The only way to fail at painting is to not paint at all. Do you need a constructive critique? Schedule a session, and I will give you an overview of your strengths in the selection of work you show me, and directions to pursue to improve and strengthen your skills. A critique is not a session where your artwork is torn apart and told how bad it is, a critique is a place to discuss where you have come from, where your skills are now, and how to move forward to accomplish your goals. If you would like to have a critique discussion please schedule a session via zoom or a travel session where I come to your studio or home. Please note that when you sign up for a class/session, that time is yours, Lovejoy requires a 24-hour notice for canceling or switching times. She turns away other work when you book a session.
