Students are encouraged to bring in their own “everyday object” or paint an object provided.
Open to painters of all levels, and to acrylic/oil painters who want to broaden their skills and concepts.
No experience necessary — Beginners welcome!
Full instruction and ALL MATERIALS provided. Friendly, creative atmosphere. Some drinks and snacks included.
