Do you feel creatively ‘stuck’ or have paintings at home that are not quite finished? Would you like to have a refresher on something we learned or simply like to come out and paint? This unstructured workshop will be open to your questions. An assortment of materials will be made available for playing.

June 5 - Create with Acrylic: at the Beach
Acrylic painting returns with this workshop. Building on our previous experiments, and using brushes along with alternative painting tools, we will combine multiple techniques in a final ‘beach-y’ piece that showcases this adaptable and expressive medium.
