This month, our painting will take us abroad. Along the way, we will try new styles, techniques, and art media! Each week we will learn a unique art form from somewhere in the world, other than home. Check out our April schedule below... and if you would like to come along, you are welcome to join us!
All projects are designed for ages 8 and up; no previous painting instruction or experience is required. We will be using temperas, acrylics, and/or watercolors. We may also incorporate collage, computer graphics, pastels, printing, and other media into our work, depending upon the project.
Time: 4:30-6:30 pm
Ages: 8 and up - adults are welcome!
Fees: $15 per class or $50 for the full month
