Upcoming Classes

ACRYLIC PAINTING

Held at the Bay View Community Center

February 24, March 2, 9, 16 & 23 6:30–8:30PM This class is geared for adults and young adults age 14+.

Whether you are brand new to painting or have experience, this fun and relaxing class will build your painting skills. An artist really learns to paint when given the freedom to let go of a subject and the expectations of a single painting. Using acrylic paint, this class will help students do this through repetition and technique. Students will learn experimentation and will be challenged to find ways to rediscover the subject. Group discussion and individual critique will guide students’ development and creation of a strong series.

Cost: $95 for an individual; save and sign up as a pair for just $120 Registration Deadline: February 17th
