This month, we are going to try something just a little bit different. Each two-hour March class will focus on a popular contemporary artist! Each week, we will learn about a famous artist's imagery, media, and technique while creating a painting using that artist's method and style. Check out our schedule below... which artist's style would you like to try for yourself?
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, 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 $60 for the full month (five class sessions this month)
