Dynamic Acrylic Painting for Kids
Try your hand at painting! Transfer your imagination to canvas! Don't worry if you can't draw very well, painting is as much imagination as drawing skill. You don't even need to color inside the lines, because there are no lines.
This workshop shows you how to create paintings using the acrylic medium, a water-based, versatile paint that is more forgiving than watercolor or oil.
