Have fun Live with The Art Sherpa during this BEGINNER HOW TO PAINT art lesson in acrylic art tutorial. This is an easy, fun, social art lesson for canvas. We talk about art and other fun subjects. With help and guidance, anyone can paint. You can paint!

Want to see something? Just comment! Tell me what you’d like to paint, or what you want to know about art. This is YOUR art journey. Open your heart and access your art.

Acrylics are a fun and enjoyable painting medium. I prefer ‘Creative Mark’ brushes, and I use Liquitex heavy body acrylic paint, Matisse Derivan, and golden colors.

I love teaching people to paint in a supportive environment. Everyone deserves to have art in their lives and feel the joy that art can bring! Follow along and share your art journey with me! I look forward to hearing from you.

    I LOVE your Christmas 🎄!! And all of the sparkling red baubles 😊!! So cozy!!

    Could you PLEASE tell me where I can find the Silver brush you used? I searched high and low at Jerry's and couldn't find it. You won't believe this but I actually used a loupe just so I could read the words on your brush!! Yep! Crazy I know. Anyhoo, I searched Silver Brush stiff white nylon 1" and still couldn't find. You mentioned these were sold in packs? Well, I tried that too-uuugghh! Any help you can provide will be so much appreciated!! I know you're pretty busy.

    Thank you and I wish you and your family a beautiful, magical, and safe Christmas!!

    Thank you! It's tough to get my 8 year old son to be confident in his art abilities but we did this together and his turned out better than mine! He loves it and is proud of his work. It's displayed for the holidays in our kitchen. Now to paint another one to send to grandma!

    LOVE your Christimas Tree!!…please tell me what number your white handled detail brush is…I know it came from the brush guys but I couldn't find a detail brush that looked like the one you had doing the looks like it'd be easier to use than the thinner brushes…I love the brush guys!! 😉
