Acrylic Painting

You will explore the versatile and fascinating world of acrylics with high realist painter Ian Bodnaryk. Experiment with techniques and principles working primarily from your own photographs.

☆ Check out his website: www.ianbodnaryk.com

Note from the teacher:
Working alongside hyper-realist painter Ian Bodnaryk, you will explore the versatile and exciting world of acrylics. Experiment with painting techniques and principles, including basic colour and composition theory, working primarily from your own photographs and other simple source imagery. *Some materials required.

Your instructor has requested that you email him at ian@ianbodnaryk.com with a jpeg of the image you would like to paint prior to the first class so that he can help you determine if it will be attainable in the time given or not. A simple subject such as fruit, flower, toy, leaf, rock, etc. caught in dramatic way would be ideal. This image could either be an original photo or one taken from creative commons on flickr: www.flickr.com/creativecommons Pre-approval of your image(s) will allow you to begin painting during the first class. If you have difficulty generating ideas, he would also be happy to discuss this with you.

*Due to time constraints, portraits, full landscape scenes, and/or wildlife are not realistic expectations for this course.

For your first class, please bring:

· your pre-approved image/photo (simple still life or landscape element)

· at least 1 stretched canvas to start: Artist grade (Fred’s Pick or Premium) – size 5”x7” to 11”x14”

· a table-top easel if you have one

· brushes Ian recommends: Tuscany Gold (Curry’s Brand or generic equivalent) or Windsor & Newton Cotman watercolour # 0 round, 2 round, 5 round, generic taklon round (white bristle)

· Ian will supply the basic acrylic paint colours required to help you get started for the first class. Ian will provide you with a suggested materials list at the first class, once he’s had a chance to discuss the options with you. These can be purchased at your local art supply story.

Please Note:

· This class is not considered a drawing class. all preparatory drawing should be done at home. Graphite transfer paper or the grid methods are acceptable options for image transfer.
