Online Painting Classes My Modern Met Academy

Whether you want to paint like an Old Master or find a way to express yourself, there's nothing more satisfying than creating a painting. Working with acrylics is a great starting point because they are affordable, versatile, and long-lasting. So, it's no wonder that My Modern Met Academy's online painting classes focus on this medium.

All four painting courses on our e-learning platform show how acrylics can be used to great effect. Thanks to the superb instruction of the artists who teach the courses, both beginners and seasoned painters will come away with new skills. And, the nice thing is that since the classes are on demand, you can start and stop the lessons at your leisure, or even watch specific lessons more than once until you get the hang of things.

So, what can you expect to learn? In her course, Dappled Light: Learn Abstract Painting with Acrylics, artist Megan Elizabeth helps unlock the mysteries of abstract art. First, she leads students through the basics of color mixing and color theory. Then, she shows how you can take inspiration from something simple—like the light that filters between the leaves of trees—and transform it into a work of art. Along the way, she shares her knowledge of how to let go creatively to get the best results.

Working with abstract art carries through to another popular painting course led by artist Nitika Ale. In Dream Your Own Abstract Acrylic Floral Paintings, she arms students with several specific techniques that she uses in her art. Then, she'll break down how to translate a simple object like a flower into an abstract masterpiece.

If abstract art isn't your thing, why not check out Elyse Dodge's unique landscape painting course? Acrylic Landscapes: Reimagining Mountains as Polygons teaches Dodge's unique way of capturing the world using geometric shapes. Using graphic software, she shows students how to break down a simple landscape into shapes and then transfer that image to canvas, where it becomes a colorful, modern vision of any environment.

Lastly, artist Dimitra Milan helps students ease into mixed media in her course Abstract Realism: Introduction to Mixed Media Painting. Using acrylic paint, colored inks, and pen, Milan reveals how easy and satisfying it can be to combine different mediums. She'll share how students can quickly create an abstract background as a base for any painting, share her sketching process, and then discuss painting techniques as she brings an image of a fox to life in her unique style.
