Acrylic Painting Courses

Course Content

Francisco's teaching approach emphasizes particular techniques in the use of each medium. In Acrylic Painting, he generally teaches 10 to 15 techniques in each 15-hour beginners' course. Some examples include: Dry Brush, Sponge, Spatter, Palette Knife, Dabbing, Detailing, Blowing, and Pouring.

In one 15-hour acrylic painting course, you will typically create three 18 x 24 inch paintings on canvas, in both abstract and realistic styles.


At Intermediate and Advanced levels, you'll widen your range of techniques and become more adept at using them as you work with increasingly complex and challenging subjects. With expert guidance, you'll develop skill and confidence in the medium through practice and experimentation. Intermediate students will learn to incorporate multi-media elements in their work, and Advanced students will explore and develop their artistic vision, personal style and expression.
