Introduction to Expressive Acrylic Florals will be offered in a three-week series on Tuesdays from November 24, through December 8 from 9:00am through 11:00am.  Participants will learn to create a loose and expressive floral portrait using acrylic paint. Starting with an abstract background, students will develop layers of color that will lead to a wonderful intuitive painting.  Some experience painting florals and working with acrylic paints is recommended for this class. Introduction to Expressive Acrylic Florals will be taught by Judith Kosinski. 

Watercolor II- Beginner Techniques will be offered weekly on Tuesdays from October 27 through November 17 from 9:00am through 11:00am.  Participants will learn the basic techniques of how to paint with watercolors.

Students will work on their own watercolor painting from start to finish with help from an expert every step of the way. This series will take students on a creative journey to recreate and enhance an image of their choice with the option of Northern Light Reflections or Snow Filled Blooms. Watercolor III is suitable for anyone with some previous watercolor painting experience who would like to move beyond the basics, as well as students who have completed Watercolor II.  Watercolor III will be taught by Deanna Weinholtz.

  • With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Salami contact information are via email: Whatsapp number: +2348143757229


  • I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

  • Omg I Finally Got Helped !! I’m so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out.. I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I’m so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp cell number +2347012841542
