Pumpkin/squash Still Life Acrylic Painting Class

Date/Time: Sunday, October 30th from 12pm - 3pm

Instructor: Terra Dawson

Class Fee: $45

Description: Come join Terra Dawson in painting a Fall Harvest Themed Pumpkin Still-life painting on October 30th from 12-3pm at Nevada Fine Arts. We will learn how to set up our composition, lighting, shadows, essential skills and techniques in acrylic painting, some beginner color theory, brush techniques and best practices, and more! I hope to see you there!

    • Pumpkin(s) for still life painting! As many as you want to paint

    • Acrylic paints of your choice: Set of 5 or more colors including the primary colors.

      • Suggested paint sets/brands: Liquitex basics set of 12, Golden Heavy Body Acrylic paints set of 6 or 12. Suggested colors: primary red, primary blue, primary yellow, mars black, titanium white, yellow ochre, ultramarine, burned umber, and raw sienna.

      • These colors are just the colors I use most often in my own acrylic paintings. The minimum paints you need are the primary colors plus white and black. 

    • Acrylic gloss or matte varnish (your preference, I prefer gloss). 

    • Acrylic gloss or matte medium (your preference, pick the same type as your varnish). 

    • Acrylic brushes in the brand of your choosing. 

      • Brushes and sizes: 1 flat brush around 2 inches wide. 1 flat brush ¾ in. 1 round brush #7-#9 (any of those sizes will do), 1 filbert brush # 8-#4 (any of those will do also), and one very small round brush for detail, #3-#0 (any of those sizes). 

    • A cup for water and a rag, wash cloth, or paper towels for wiping and drying your brushes. 

    • One 11x14” Canvas.

    • Some sort of palette. You can buy my favorite reusable palette if you like: Sta-wet acrylic paint palette from Masterson. But any disposable surface will do also. Paper plates work, there are also disposable paint pads that come in a packet like drawing paper...I prefer the Masterson palette but that's because I like to work on things for more than one day and often need to keep my paint wet for up to a week at a time, the Sta-wet palette is excellent for that. 

    • 2B pencil and eraser of your choice.

    • Tracing paper
