Acrylic Fridays with Rosalie

Discover the versatility of acrylics! Dries quickly, easy application and clean-up. We'll begin with basic drawing lines to follow as you begin the glazing up of your painting, which is layering one thin layer of paint over another as each under-painting shines through.

Rosalie provides instruction and guidance with ongoing demonstration and lots of individual attention to each student. Acrylic Fridays is a FUN class where you can discover and develop your own painting style. Beginners/intermediate/advanced, all skill levels welcomed!

NOTE: if enrollment for this class is low, Rosalie may offer to add acrylic registrants to her Watercolor Wednesdays class (students will be notified if this is the case).

$10 materials fee payable at the time of registration. If bringing your own materials, please see below for a specific list of supplies needed for class.

Table, floor easels, brushes, and water buckets will be supplied.
