PAINTING - Beginning 

This course is designed specifically for the beginner. Step-by-step projects designed as an introduction to successful methods of acrylic & oil painting provide an excellent foundation for less structured independent painting sessions. Please decide on either acrylic or oil painting; many students find that acrylics are easier for beginners. Basic supply list is below and also is available at the Front Desk.

Any model expenses for CAC drawing and painting students will be paid for this term by a generous donation from the Walter Wada Family Fund
