How It Works

Painting with Georgia is a comprehensive online video program that will teach you how to paint with acrylics. The videos will give you a solid foundation in choosing the right supplies, using colour, techniques for achieving realistic effects, and moving from simple structure and composition to realistically detailed finishing touches. Each video class is approximately 30-35 minutes in duration.

Students are offered a WELCOME Class that covers:

  • Art supply stores in your neighbourhood
  • Why paints have various prices and which ones to buy
  • The best brushes to buy for painting with acrylics
  • The importance of good photographs

The welcome class offers a preview of the paintings you will create in the Introduction to Acrylic Painting.
