Join Olivia as she demystifies the process of painting in acrylics. You’ll learn fundamental painting techniques like blending and glazing, how to layout a composition, and tricks for completing a cohesive painting. After four sessions, you’ll have practiced and developed skills that will give you the confidence to dive further into this versatile and exciting medium. Best of all, you’ll be supported throughout the journey.

You may purchase your own supplies or pay a $15 fee for paints, brushes, a palette and purchase a canvas (prices vary/size). Drop-ins are welcome.
