When you decide you would like to paint, you will likely encounter the myth that it "takes talent." Don't believe it! The desire to learn to paint and enthusiasm are what you need more than anything else.

Acrylic paint is a more modern choice— only recently becoming commercially available for artists in the 1950s! In acrylic paints, pigment is suspended in a plastic polymer. It's most notable for its fast drying time and can be used on almost any surface without priming. It's water-soluble, making clean-up much easier (all you'll need is soap and water). Acrylic dries into a durable, flexible, water-resistant surface. It is very versatile and can be used thinly like watercolors or more thickly like oil paints, depending on the desired effect.

Whether you’re new to acrylics or advanced in this medium, knowing how acrylics mix and mingle with other art materials and mediums is critical for painting success.  After an afternoon with ArtsNashoba’s Visual Arts Director Donna Dawson, students will be well on their way to creating fabulous images on canvas!
