Acrylics are a great way to begin your painting experience. Easy to work with, quick drying, non-toxic and water based, acrylics can provide an artistic adventure with less frustration than watercolor or oils. Yet, acrylics share some of the same qualities with both.


During this four-hour workshop, you’ll create a landscape painting from start to finish. A demo will be provided first. You can then copy that demo or paint from a provided photo (or both). Plus, learn about the tools you’ll need to paint in acrylics at home and what to know before buying them.


All the materials for this workshop will be included. You’ll only need to bring your enthusiasm – and wear comfortable clothing!
