Acrylic is a popular fast-drying water-soluble paint that consists of pigment suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion.  Learn to make exciting paintings with this versatile paint medium. Specific techniques will be demonstrated by the instructor followed by exercises and projects that employ those techniques. These techniques include: impasto effects where paint sits on the surface and conveys depth and texture; dry brush techniques and transparent glazing with acrylic for layering color; and methods for blending one color into another for a smooth gradation. This class is appropriate for students at all levels of experience.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
