SPEND SOME TIME IN OUR OPEN STUDIO. Open to all levels of Acrylic Painters – you will learn to use this water medium to bring out your artist within, and most importantly, bring a sense of self to your work.

The Open Studio will cover the fundamentals starting with color, mixing paints and proper use of brushes and composition. Examples for you to paint will be supplied.
