These beginning level painting classes will introduce students to the painting process, palette set up, handling brushes, and many other aspects associated with the painting process.   By breaking down the process into different steps, participants can gain a new understanding of painting skills and approaches. Each session is a self contained lesson and includes instructor demos, individualized instruction and guided practice.
Materials provided or bring with you the supplies you want to explore and experiment with.
