Big Art Quest #2 The Big art Quest Site Deliberately Creative -Stephanie Bergeron Art Quest Binder :

We are going to talk about how to make color charts for acrylic paint. Get the most out of the paint you have, and understand better the colors you buy! Making and using color charts are the #1 thing artists can do to improve their experience with color.

Learn about color mixing and how to make color mixing guides! :)

Resist buying paint until you see the Quest! Try and use the paint you already have. This is about making it work with what you have so you only buy the paint you will use!

Quest #2 Custom color Chart We will be covering Gridding the Cart Laying it Out The Mix tells the truth or No color is a bad color What if you have a new color came to visit ? Artist Statement: What is Your favorite Color ? This is the kids equivalent of what do you do for a living. Lets bring it back as much more important fact about who a person is. Intangible Quest: During the week notice colors and imagine mixing them.

Optional page: All of the rainbow. Paint an abstract heart and try using all the colors in it you can. You may feature your favorite color. Paint this in a meditative state. Relax and breath the entire painting. Just let your mind wander and mix colors on the pallet filling in all of the paper. Now while practicing a deep artful breath examine your painting. What is your favorite moment of the painting ( a place that just pleases you) On the back write what that was. ( Believe it or Not you may Forget) Have fun Live with The Art Sherpa during this BEGINNER HOW TO PAINT art lesson in acrylic art tutorial. This is an easy, fun, social art lesson for canvas. We talk about art and other fun subjects. With help and guidance, anyone can paint. You can paint!

Want to see something? Just comment! Tell me what you'd like to paint, or what you want to know about art. This is YOUR art journey. Open your heart and access your art.

Acrylics are a fun and enjoyable painting medium. I prefer 'Creative Mark' brushes, and I use Liquitex heavy body acrylic paint, Matisse Derivan, and golden colors.

I love teaching people to paint in a supportive environment. Everyone deserves to have art in their lives and feel the joy that art can bring! Follow along and share your art journey with me! I look forward to hearing from you.
