Acrylic Painting Workshop by Shilpa Jacob on June 6th

About the Artist:
Hi, I am Shilpa Jacob from Shilpa J Designs (@shilpajdesigns). I love creating beautiful patterns and specialize in botanical illustrations. I work in multiple mediums and specialize in watercolors and acrylic painting. I hope to bring joy and a sense of calm through my artworks. I am an Engineer by education and then I switched to the social sector and taught in an under served community for 2 years. This is where I truly fell in love with art, I would love planning lessons for the children filled with color and joy, and this further enhanced by love for art. I have been painting ever since I was a kid, and I have never really stopped exploring the different realms of art, it simply fascinates me. I love blue seas, green plants and warm cup of ginger-cardamom tea. I stay at Bangalore with my husband and 8-month-old daughter.

  1. The basics of acrylic
  2. They will learn to blend different colors and create beautiful backgrounds which transitions from one color to another seamlessly.
