Painting

With this week's edition of Sunday School with Universal Class we will help you with courses about painting, whether on a canvas or on a human face! Classes available through Universal Class are free to patrons who hold Beauregard Parish library cards.

Here are some sample courses. The descriptions are shortened, but there is more detail at Universal Class.

Face Painting 101
"Face painting, simply defined, is the act of applying cosmetic paint to a person's face for entertainment, theatrical, or even symbolic reasons. We see examples of face painting at Halloween or at school carnivals and other charity functions where face painter's set up booths. At the successful completion of this course, you'll have the knowledge you need to be able to paint almost any design that you want. Don't worry! We will walk you through every step and teach you everything you need to know so that by the time you start painting designs, you're well on your way to being a pro!"

Acrylic Painting 101
"Welcome to the world of acrylic painting, an art world full of versatility and bright, bold colors. Because acrylics are water based, it offers opacity (meaning you can paint right over your mistakes) that makes this medium especially appealing to beginners. On the other hand, experienced artists can take full advantage of the unique properties that acrylics offer and push the boundaries beyond their current artistic capabilities."

Water Color Painting 101
"In this course you will learn the basics of one of the most enduring art forms in our culture: watercolor painting. It is the easiest way of expressing yourself through art and has a long history of teaching great painters their first lessons in subjects ranging from proper technique to design principals. Most books and courses out there demand a large amount of self-study and miss the point of learning to paint--to have fun! Included in the course are tips from professional painters, examples of some of the great watercolor work ever created, and instructions that can take you from never having picked up a brush to completing your first full painting in no time."
