Registration Deadline: May 3 @ 12pm

Take your painting to the next level! 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, various painting techniques, and working methods, both during class and through optional homework assignments.
This class is suitable for beginners-intermediate painters.
