Event Series (See All)

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint with acrylics?  Join us for this fun 3-part series designed for the beginner, and folks wanting to brush up on their skills.

From prepping your canvas to finishing & to properly preserving your painting to be treasured for years to come, artist Tania Dirks will give you all the foundational steps you need to learn this medium. A great opportunity to find your style and voice through stroke and color application. Lessons will include, toning and color blocking, creating visual rhythm and movement in composition, layering and highlighting and then the all important “how to know when to stop”! In addition to these foundational techniques & principles, Tania will also support your learning by sharing acrylic art theory each week. Not to mention that her teaching style is a lot of fun!

All art tools & materials are included with this class, and we will offer you a choice of 16”x20” canvas or 12×16”, all you need to bring is an inspirational subject to paint (a personal photograph or one you find out in the world!). A beginner acrylic paint set by Liquitex will be included in this class.

Tania looks forward to sharing her love of this medium and art with you!!

Additional tools & materials- for your practice at home, if you’d like that option will be suggested, with a link for purchase.

No experience is needed.

We look forward to hosting you!
