A new approach in learning to paint is being offered at Haywood Community College. How would you like to learn the differences between watercolor, acrylic, and oil painting before signing up for a class in one of them? HCC’s 6 week Beginning Painting class offers a comparison of all three media.

Work in watercolor includes: learning papers to work on, brushes to use, what watercolor is, and a basic way to use it. Acrylic painting covers: surfaces to paint on, brushes to use, what acrylic paint is, and basic ways to use it. The same is covered in the use of oil. Basic color theory is covered, using the primaries red, yellow, and blue.

By the end of the 6-week course, students will be familiar enough with each medium to be able to make an informed choice of what class to pursue next. Basic drawing experience is desired but nor required. Materials will be offered for sale the first day of class at a nominal cost.

Beginning Painting will run November 5th through December 10th, Mondays, 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the Continuing Education building of HCC. Please call 828-627-4505 for more information or to register.
