Fun class, no pressure atmosphere

Beginner’s acrylic class for serious artists – adult and youth. We will be striving for a finished painting with your own creativity applied. I will stress composition and color while you are getting a feel for the texture and the magical quality of acrylics.

We finish a painting in 2 hours. You’d be surprised what you can do.
