Painting with Acrylics @ Family Learning Center
Aug 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Ages 9 – 15 years
This course is about learning basics of composition and color applications with painting. We will also add dimension to a painting in the manner of collage. This means adhering dimensional materials to the painting and then painting them to work with the underlying painting. Participants will have the option of doing a painting only or to enhance their painting with dimension. The instructor will bring appropriate dimensional materials for participants to use if they choose. A materials list will be emailed to students prior to the start of class that students will be responsible for picking up.

Please contact the instructor with any questions at 952-556-8726 or theartofsaraleehanlon@gmail.com.
