Acrylic Degas Fairy Little Dancer

Explore the unique joys of working with acrylics – one of the most versatile and forgiving mediums of them all.

I painted Degas Fairy a couple of years ago using one of Degas’ ballerina’s as the fairy and have wanted to do more for a series so today we will paint #2 using Degas’s Little Dancer sculpture for the Fairy inspiration 😊

Drawing Ballet Dancer

There are so many things we can do in a drawing session – one very important goal is to learn how to draw what we truly see and not what we think we see 😉

Today we’ll study Degas’s fabulous gestural drawing ‘Ballet Dancer in Repose’.

Stay all day and pay $35 for both classes!
