There’s no reason to fear a blank canvas. If you’ve ever wanted to paint, here’s a class that offers the perfect introduction to the art—and will have you ready to pick up your brush with confidence.

Begin working in the versatile and flexible medium of acrylic paints as you learn to mix colors, use brushes, and approach elements of form such as value, texture, line, color, shape, and edges. Explore composition and variation, learn art terminology, and a bit of art history as well.

No matter the subject or the style you choose, this thorough grounding will help you create successful paintings—and start you thinking like an artist.
