Learn the tips and tricks to make a painting of metal and glass look more realistic without being overly photographic. Acrylics' quick dry time can be frustrating for many, but Angela will take you through the steps to manipulate the paints and make it work for you.

In each 4-hour class, Angela will demonstrate how to paint a different subject of glass or metal. After each demo you will start on your own quick study that can be used to launch a bigger piece in the future!

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from this master of reflective surfaces!

  • Your choice of support: canvas or panel, size can be between 8x10 and 11x14-inches. Larger supports require more time so consider your painting speed and comfort level.
  • You may use up to 4 supports during this class, depending on your speed and amount of extra studio time you get outside the class.
