(call to register 540-842-7741) Watercolor or Acrylic Painting for Ages 16 and Over.
Learn many techniques of watercolor and acrylic painting to express your creativity. Follow demonstrations and then paint from PSM (Personal Source Material). Small classes result in lots of individual attention and meeting other people who enjoy art. Come prepared to relax and have fun while learning.

These classes are designed for beginners or intermediate painters who want to go back to the basics. Materials are not included but a list is available to download. Students will want their own supplies to continue working between classes. Special materials will be supplied at times for experimentation and examples will be displayed. Students will become familiar with color theory and texture. All that is needed is a desire to learn, experiment and a realization that meeting their personal goals can be a lifetime endeavor.

Small group classes run two hours once weekly (Monday or Saturday) from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Please pre-register.
