Art Fundamentals: Allison Watson Acrylic Painting Class



As part of its Art Fundamentals series of classes, The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens is offering a 6-week acrylic painting class with artist and instructor Allison Watson.

Ms. Watson is a life-long resident of North Florida.  She began her profession as a studio artist in her early twenties and has worked as an animator, illustrator, textile artist, art teacher, licensed interior decorator, and art teacher on the staff of the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens.  Ms. Watson paints from her own photographs of Florida as well as other remote places from her kayaking and hiking travels.  As a life-long environmentalist, her creations manifest her love of nature.  Her works are represented in over three hundred and fifty public and private collections in the United States and abroad.

Students in Allison’s class will learn composition for landscape and still life, color theory, and techniques in acrylic.  The class is open to all skill levels with beginners being introduced to the medium and intermediate to advanced painters strengthening their skills.  Each student will have individual attention and work at their own level.

This six week session begins February 27 and meets on March 6, 13, 20, 27 and April 3

Classes fall on a Wednesday each week, running from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and are open to individuals 16 and up.  The cost for class is $170 for members, $190 for non-members, and $85 for active docents.

For more information or to register for classes, please call (904) 355-0630.
