Acrylic Painting 101

"Still life is the key that unlocks the secrets to great
painting. When painted with extraordinary perception
and ability, objects have the potential to allegorically
represent the full range of the human condition." Nelson Shanks

This still-life lessons will emphasize finding the rhythm in painting and learning when to make the shifts between balancing composition, drawing and color within a painting.

The workshop will commence from setting up a still-life and working out a composition with thumbnail sketches, then developing a color study, and then an open grisaille, the actual painting, working out the drawing issues, color development, keeping paint layers thin and even, and finding the areas where there would be more build-up of impasto and texture, and finally the last touch: removing what is not needed, and adding finishing details.

About Marina

As a child of five years old I was brought by my mom to Gulyaev’s Art Studio and this famous Ukrainian artist involved me in the marvelous world of fine art. In high-school, I participated in a federally-funded program for the Gifted and Talented in Visual Art. After graduation I won a huge comp

I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them.

Students can expect to focus on learning a good foundation. I am familiar with several different approaches when working with acrylic paints. They include but are not limited to; direct painting, graphic approach, building up of layers using glazes and dry brushing. I also sensitive to the surfaces acrylic is used on; paper, canvas, fabric, metal and wood are just a few.

About Sandy

I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows

Sandy was amazing! It usually takes my Rocky a while to warm up to new people but he took to Sandy immediately. Rocky was asking when he can have her back as soon as she left.

"I had the crazy idea of gifting to the girl I like a painting of her favorite flower. She lives in Shanghai and I was flying to over from New York. The problem was that I did not know how to paint. Because I had been so busy with work, I waited until last week before my flight to take lessons. Guiseppe guided me on how to approach my project and how to mix colors. Could not have done it without his instruction. Thank you."
