Debbie Milner
will teach you the techniques she uses for painting with acrylics, covering such topics as understanding acrylic paint, creating a good composition and design from a photo, basic colour mixing, painting glowing sunlight, brushwork, and more. This class will be taught using a step-by-step method, which will make it easy for beginners to understand the process. Debbie will provide assistance to each student at his or her individual painting level. Photo references will be provided.


Debbie's Bio
“Painting has been a passion for me since childhood. I love the whole process of painting, from the challenge of coming up with a good composition to mixing and manipulating paint on the canvas. Painting for me starts with seeing an image that moves me for whatever reason, example: light, design, contrast, or the story element in what I see. It starts there and grows till I have to paint it.”

Debbie is a self-taught artist and has been painting professionally for the past 18 years. Teaching and sharing her passion to paint with students is a part of her career that she really enjoys. Her works can be viewed at  and is sold through Hampton Gallery in Kamloops,  Lloyd Gallery in Penticton, and Jenkins Showler Gallery in Surrey.
