Students Working in Acrylics Students learned how to mix color values, acrylic techniques and chose spacial photos to create a painting. We also studied Monet’s Impressionism and the colors as well as values in his painting. Student duplicated the values in the painting as an assignment of seeing and accurately mixing the values that they saw. Each student chose a different subject as well as style of painting and I helped them to develop it into a finished piece of art. This was a process of not learning acrylics but completing a painting that they were each proud of.
