In this five-week virtual course students will participate in live-zoom sessions exploring PAFA’s museum virtual collection and discovering the “secrets” of some of America’s greatest artists. Students will develop confidence in using a variety of artmaking techniques, creating naturalistic and illusionistic artworks, capturing a likeness, and much more, all while having fun with acrylic and watercolor paints. 

The Art Toolbox - a complementary set of Bristol Paper, Acrylics, and Brushes will be mailed to student’s home address.   

Students should have the following materials available at home: 

  • Pencil/Eraser 
  • Water Colors  
  • Optional Coloring Materials (colored pencils, markers, etc.) 
  • Scrap Paper or any sketchbook already owned 
  • Inking Pen (micron, brush pen, or anything similar)
