Palette Knife Acrylic Painting, All Levels (Prereq: Beg Acrylics)

3/20/2023 - 4/17/2023 

 A full list of supplies will be available under Classes on the instructor's website: www.myakkamoon.com

Supplies

Below is a list of recommended supplies. You may click on the links to purchase some of the items from Amazon.com. The RGM painting knife brand was selected for its deep profile and flexible blade, which helps make the process of applying paint to canvas easier. Be prepared to use a large amount of paint. Please also bring a surface to mix paint on like a palette or palette paper. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on my Contact page. I look forward to seeing you in class!

We will be using paint brushes as well as palette knives throughout the class. So, please bring any brushes that you may have. If you need to purchase brushes, I recommend acquiring a few different sizes and shapes. Some sizes/shapes that are nice to have are a filbert size 4 or 6, round size 3 and 3/4 or 3/8 inch angle shader. If you need to purchase a whole set the Monte Marte set linked here on amazon is a good starter set of soft brushes. You may also find a few stiff, natural bristle brushes useful for added texture effects. 

The following three palette knives from Dickblick.com or Michaels.com (online only) are what we will be using in class:

Traditional RGM Palette Knife 20

RGM Italian Plus Painting Knife, 22   

RGM Italian Plus Painting Knife, 62 

For paint, please purchase the milo Heavy Body Acrylic Painting set as well as the additional Cerulean Blue color from MyArtscape Brand. Those are only available on Amazon. The links are below. 

milo Acrylic Paint Set of 8 Colors | 8 oz Jars | Heavy Body Acrylic Painting Set | Made in the USA | Non-Toxic, Holds Texture and Brush Strokes | Professional Paints for Artists, Students, & Hobby Painters

MyArtscape Cerulean Blue Acrylic Paint 3.38 oz

You will also need a good amount of modeling paste for the class. Here is the link:

Modeling Paste Medium 32 oz

You will also need a few different sizes of canvas panels and a canvas paper pad (link below). You will need two small squares size 4 x 4 or 6 x 6, two size 9 x 12 and two size 11 x 14. I find multipacks on amazon to be the best deal. There is a link for a pack below. 

Canvas Panel Multipack

Also a Strathmore Canvas Paper 10 sheet Pad 9 x 12 inch (recommended) but any canvas pad will do. It will be used for practice exercises. Here is the link:

Canvas Paper Pad 9 x12

This is a level 2 course geared for students with a beginning knowledge of painting having painted before and wanting to feel more success and confidence in painting. Students will begin and be close to completing each class project in the same step-by-step instruction offered in my Level 1 Acrylics Course. They will be learning and observing how artists approach various painting styles using the procedures and skills necessary to create a successful painting. Attention will be given to ‘the bones’ of painting such as composition, value, and color relationships, etc.  Cost of supplies is $100-$125 approximately.

For the FIRST class : My expectation is for students come ready to paint.  Limited supplies will be available for the first class.  

A list of supplies will be both sent via email following registration as well as the first class.

NO CLASS  MARCH 16 (Spring Break Week).
