If you have never painted before or have years of experience, you will enjoy a fun, relaxing and creative activity with a finished painting, ready to hang, by the end of the class. Using acrylic paints and a 16X20 canvas, create a beautiful painting through an easy, step by step, instructor guided method. A live or predetermined image maybe used and the instructor will guide you from start to completion. You will return home with your own painting and along the way, you'll gain a deeper understanding of this genre. The class can be enjoyed with friends as a social and creative activity, or individually as a way to learn about the painting process or refine skills you already have.
