Acrylics are a remarkable permanent, rich, colorful, versatile, and adaptable medium that gives artists endless possibilities. No wonder they attract artists all over the world! These lessons will teach you how to get started with acrylics and take you on a journey to the ocean with them as we paint some simple beach art.

Dive right into the basic supplies you need to get started with acrylics. Then discover my solutions to acrylic obstacles, such as keeping the paints from drying too fast. Then we'll explore simple techniques while we create a beautiful underwater ocean scene together.

What time GMT will this be?
Hi Cassie, This will be the first Strathmore workshop I’ve participated in, but it is my understanding that the video lesson is simply posted on the workshop page on the initial day of each specific workshop. It is not a live video class. It is then available for at least a year thereafter. That, at least, is my interpretation of the info under ‘How Our Online Workshops Work’ at the bottom of this page, under the ‘3. Start’ section. Strathmore (and it’s current parent company) are American, and in the Eastern Time Zone, which is 5 hrs behind GMT. If the video lesson is uploaded at midnight here, it will be 5AM your time. I certainly do not know for sure what time the video will appear on the start date, but if I had to guess I would say sometime between 12AM midnight and 8AM EST. I say that because after 8AM EST, in Australia (which is 16 hrs ahead of EST), it becomes the next calendar date. That is my .02 Canadian cents. I hope it was somewhat helpful. Take care, Deb
