Online Painting Series
NEW! 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! Bring your creative ideas, your willingness to "loosen up" as you paint, and learn some new techniques! Some experience painting florals and working with acrylic recommended for this class. In order to maintain the safest environment possible, class will be offered via Zoom Meeting, a free online audio-visual platform.
All adult classes and workshops are recorded and are available for one week after the class. Therefore, if you miss a class, you will have one week to catch up on the class at your convenience. Review our class information and procedures for more information.
Please review the supply list (coming soon!) to purchase materials before the start of class.
