    This class is for someone who has basic experience painting in acrylics and wants to improve their skill and confidence as an artist. The class will focus on composition, use of color, brush strokes and visual impact, but move beyond the technical skills to the less tangible “joy” of painting. Over the course of two sessions, you will complete a painting of a spring scene. You will be encouraged not just to copy the sample painting but to “make it your own” as only you can do.

    Please bring an assortment of acrylic paint brushes (flats and rounds in various sizes) to class. All other materials will be provided.
