Open yourself to a new adventure with acrylic paint. You’ll soon be an expert with color, texture, collage, blending and transparent glazing. Painters of all abilities are welcome. Local artist, Suzi McArdle, will teach you basic acrylic painting, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in four weeks. Bring a photo reference of what you would like to paint to the first class. Supply list is included in the class description on our website and is also mailed to each student one week prior to class, if requested. No experience needed.
1. Set of primary colors and white. Red, Blue, Yellow, White and Brown. Tubes work best for saving paint.
