Anyone can master acrylic painting with the right skills! In this all-inclusive acrylic painting course, you will learn to achieve a wide range of painting techniques. Gain confidence to create any painting effect, style and image you desire!

Learn from the nation’s foremost acrylic expert and international best-selling author of acrylic painting books, including Acrylic Revolution. As a bonus gift, Instructor Nancy Reyner includes four pdf books at no additional cost with this course. This is a $95 value if purchased separately.

Nancy's professional and easy-to-follow videos show you all the ways to use acrylic - from traditional painting methods such as glazing, stippling, color mixing and dry brushing, as well as NEW contemporary methods such as flinging, pouring, sanding, layering, and hundreds more painting tips to get successful results.

This course can be used in two ways; a do-it-yourself course AND a reference guide. Follow each video in order like a workshop. Use it again and again as a handy resource guide to quickly access acrylic techniques whenever you need to.

Warning - this course may cause extreme side effects such as creative joy and a genuine painting addiction!
