About the artist
I’ve taught acrylic painting for beginners for almost 10 years on a freelance basis through a number of different studios. I also have been offering “pop up” in-home paint parties for private groups. I LOVE teaching painting, and my favorite thing is when my students unlock a love or a knack for creative expression because of taking my classes. I started this Youtube show at the end of the year in 2019, with the hope of offering my “beautiful but do-able” paintings and step-by-step instructions with a worldwide audience. I hope you enjoyed today’s step by step acrylic painting tutorial for beginners. Let me know what you thought of today’s easy acrylic painting tutorial in the comments section!
