Paint your way into Spring with warmth, light, and color!

Explore your personal, artistic voice and creativity as you explore ways to create beautiful art on paper and canvas.  You will discover how drawing your design/ideas will lead to painting with confidence and enjoyment, using acrylics, watercolors, and even paper if you so choose.  You will have choices in using charcoal, pencils, pens, pastel (and other materials that you love) to sketch your ideas and then build your paintings step by step using gorgeous color, texture, interesting lines, and value.  You will learn different, exciting, and fun  techniques for drawing, painting, and working with mixed media to include paper collage if you desire.  The choice will always be yours!

Your instructor will facilitate your creative journey by demonstrating ways to use simple watercolor, acrylics, pencils, pens, and interesting papers, to complete both representational and abstract compositions. Your instructor also brings in certain and unusual materials to demonstrate and share with students to keep your costs down.

Demonstrations are designed to build understanding, skill, and expertise with drawing, painting, and adding collage. 

Explore, discover, and have fun as you LEARN in a safe, supportive environment with wonderful, friendly participants!
