Jansen Art Studio- Sidney Fine Art Center

Historical and Contemporary Art

All colors and mediums in the Paint It Simply program are designed and manufactured by Global Art Supply.  The Heritage MultiMedia painting system is key to the success of Paint It Simply.  The techniques shown in this program will not work with other brands of acrylics or oils.  Heritage is a new generation, artist quality, heavy pigmented paint and is essential to the techniques we will use. 

Avoid frustration.  These lesson are design for Heritage MultiMedia colors.  

90% of the Paint It Simply lessons are painted with only 6 Heritage colors.  A small investment to learn the proper way while having lots of fun!
