Returning students are also welcome to create individual projects with the instructor as they continue to develop their work during the class.

  • 9" x 12" pad of watercolor paper.
  • 4 canvas boards or stretched canvasses ranging from 9" x 12" to 24" x 24".

Acrylic Painting Basics
Reviewed by Erin S. on 5/3/2019
I've been drawing forever, but have always wanted to try my hand at painting – I just don't know anything about techniques and wanted a space to explore and learn the basics. This class is just what I was looking for! It has a relaxed, not-too-structured vibe because the class is quite small (I've taken it twice now and have been one of 3 students both times). If you're looking for something super rigorous this may not be it, but if you're looking to work on your skills in a low-pressure environment with a teacher who will personalize assignments to you, you won't be disappointed :) Zach is a wonderful artist and encouraging teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge of both art history and the more contemporary scene.

Clarity, our instructor, was great. Knowlegeable. Encouraging. Thoughtful. I took this class to reaquaint myself with painting after not painting for over 30 years. Clarity gave me the instruction & encouragement that I needed to reawaken the paibter in me. Corny, I know. So what. Great class. Great space in Gowanus. My fellow students were sharing & caring. Goddamn I loved that class. Too bad it had ro end.

First off, this is a review for the "5 Session Intro to Painting" class with instructor Clarity Haynes. I thoroughly enjoyed this class! I learned a lot about acrylic painting techniques and enjoyed myself. Clarity Haynes, the instructor, was well prepared and organized and a wonderful guide to this new material. It helped that I had 3 great classmates working along with me -- it was a warm, friendly, and productive atmosphere and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to do it.
