Have you ever wanted to paint with Acrylics but didn't know how to start?  Or are you an experienced painter who wants to improve your skills?  This class is for you!  I will listen to what each student would like to learns and coach you on your own journey with Acrylics!!  Whether it is painting in a realistic manner or flying wildly out of the box into the Abstract!  You will be introduced to a variety of mediums,  we will talk and practice color theory, and try out the many types of brushes.  The student will work from photos of their choosing so that at the end of class you will have paintings that are uniquely yours!
