Acrylic Painting 1F23

Age Group: 
Teens (17+), Adults

An 8-week class in a relaxed setting for beginning and experienced painters who want to work on assigned subjects or on their own projects with guidance and feedback. 

We will work with still life or a live model, exploring composition, value, and color. 

Those with an established painting practice will find ways to infuse your process with new vigor and be challenged to test the edges of your comfort zone.


*No class on Thanksgiving, 11/23/23
