Adult Acrylic Painting Ages 18-99

Want to make good on a New Years resolution to honor your inner creative? Working with acrylic and gouache paints we will dig into color theory, color mixing, brushwork and composition in new and creative ways. Over six weeks, we will learn how to make repeating patterns, and create both abstract and representational pieces while exploring the properties of these two versatile paints. We will work on canvas as well as paper, and also incorporate mixed media and collage. All materials will be supplies for our students.
