In this step-by-step painting class for beginners, take a hands-on approach that is heavy on results. Much of the instruction is individualized and you will be in the middle of your first painting and picking up tricks-of-the-trade before you know it. These classes are also designed to accommodate repeat students, so continuing education can be a lifelong experience. Acrylic painters welcome.
