Intro To Acrylics

August 17 @ 6:30 pm August 31 @ 8:30 pm MDT

3-week course – Wednesdays – August 17-31 – 6:30-8:30pm

Want to learn how to paint but don’t know where to start? This introduction to acrylic painting is great for absolute beginner artists as well those who have been painting for a bit but would like to improve their skills. Each week the instructor will teach specific techniques like creating smooth gradients verses incorporating textures into your painting, then students will have class time to practice those techniques while creating a painting. All supplies are included, paints, canvas, and brushes. Come and release your inner painter. Professional artist, Jessica Henry, will be your guide. Ages 18 and up are welcome.

Optional items to bring:
– Any special paintbrushes you might like to use (we will have plenty to borrow, as well)
– Layered clothing, as the temperatures may be difficult to manage in the building
– Bottled water/beverage

This course is limited to 12 participants and may be rescheduled if a minimum of 3 participants are not enrolled. We will contact you via email in this case. Scholarships for this and all of our other classes are available for those who otherwise would not be able to attend art classes, thanks to generous donations to our Art Start Fund. If you would like to make classes available to others, see our sponsorships page to contribute a monthly or one-time donation. Thank you for supporting (y)our commUNITY!
