Exploring Acrylics

Ages, 15 - adult

Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

$90 non-member / $81 member

Discover the joys of painting with acrylics. No other medium can match the versatility and ease of use of acrylics.  Clean-up is easy and no toxic materials are required. Acrylics are well suited to almost any subject matter and painting surface. Students can work from still-lifes or photographs. 

Participants are asked to bring their own supplies. Click here for a suggested supply list.  Please note you do not need to buy all of these supplies. They are just suggestions. At a minimum students should have a basic set of acrylics, various sizes of bushes, a pallet, and something to paint on. Canvas paper is fine.

Classes are held on Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:30 pm at ArtsConnect Arts Center, 9158 Winton Road, the building behind the Springfield Township Fire Station. 

No class November 23, week of Thanksgiving.
