“Beginner/Intermediate Acrylic Painting” presented by Peggy Richard
Come explore this versatile medium while creating paintings inspired by your original photographs. Strengthen your skills with better composition, stronger value and color awareness, as well as expressive mark making. Classes will include some short exercises to get you working and thinking in different ways. Emphasis will be placed on developing your personal painting approach, in a cooperative and fun setting!
