Acrylic Painting Sessions Class

2019 Burian Acrylic Class

June 3, 10, 17, 24: Take your painting to the next level with this 4 day class! The best way to improve is by practice. Learn, refresh, or refine the basics of using acrylic paint in this multi-session class. This class will meet once a week for four weeks, providing students with the opportunity for a more focused study. Students will learn about materials, a variety of painting techniques, and methods of working, both during class and through optional homework assignments. This class is suitable for beginners.

[tabby title=”Instructor Bio”] Margo Burian is an award-winning artist who maintains studios in Grand Rapids and northern Michigan. She holds a BFA from Kendall College of Arts and Design.
