Kick-off the new year with a great new hobby! Maybe you’ve never painted before or it’s been a long time. Explore and experiment while you have fun learning the basics of painting - including shapes, value and composition. Rejuvenate your creative spirit, learn to use the brush like a pro and have a great time doing it. Ignore your work email and put your cell phone away - come play with us and explore your creative side! Painting has been shown to help reduce stress and put you in a ‘euphoric’ state of mind. A variety of photo references will be provided so that you can pick something that inspires you and get great results from it.
Workshop includes paints and mediums for class use, a paintbrush, canvas panel, a beginner booklet, paintbrush, color wheel, mixed media paper to experiment on and plenty of one on one attention.
