Intermediate Acrylics NEW!

Painting with acrylics can be great fun and should be enjoyed not endured. Acrylics are easy to use mainly because they are water soluble, and are not encumbered by numerous technical rules, as are oils. Acrylics allow the artist to jump in and push the medium to its limits. In this class come and experience the fun, ease and lack of boundaries this medium offers. There will be time in class to work on your projects and receive assistance and helpful critiques. You will be painting in the first class from photo references or drawing.

“I SO enjoyed this class! I have taken a variety of art classes in 281 over the years and this instructor is great. She was clear, concise, a great time manager and very fun. I will be taking more classes from her so sign her up! Best 281 experience ever in Community Ed!"

Vanessa Merry moved to Florence, Italy at the age of eighteen to study the methods of the great masters in painting, drawing, and printmaking at Palazzo Spinelli. From here she continued her education and exploration of the human-figure, still-lifes, and landscapes at Atelier de Chimere in France where she enjoyed Plein-Aire painting in the French countryside. She moved back to the United States where she attended and graduated from the University of Minnesota in Visual Arts and Art History.

She has been actively involved in the Twin Cities art scene for many years. Vanessa Merry has won several awards for her paintings in local galleries. She was the President of the Robbin Gallery in Robbinsdale, Minnesota and is currently on the staff of WARM (Women's Art Resources of MN).

Vanessa currently enjoys creating works of art in many different styles, but finds herself happiest when she is in the classroom teaching others all the skills that she has acquired in her studies.
