Course description:Have you ever wanted to dabble in Abstract Painting? Or any painting class for that matter, but just don’t want to go to the expense of purchasing ALL the supplies that are needed … just to see if you even like to paint?
WELL, you’re in luck! We are offering a NEW ‘beginning painting class’ for anyone interested in Abstract Expressionism. We will provide all the supplies necessary to paint using acrylics. This is your time to experiment, let loose and have some fun! You will learn painting techniques and processes using brushes, palette knives and textures; and gain some knowledge of abstract expressionism. Our plan is for you to have a relaxed, enjoyable time expressing yourself through painting! As abstract artists, we all know, our best paintings happen when we ‘just let go’, don’t care and let the experience take over. We hope you will join us!
