Acrylic Painting; 5 weeks

Join local artist Liz Frankland for a 5-week class on acrylic painting. Frankland, who is based in Berkley, is an award winning painter with a love of mid-century modern design, everyday spaces, and interiors filled with light and shadow.

Frankland will demonstrate how to create a scene that is loose but realistic in style, and how to find the point where detail can be expressed accurately yet abstract. Students are asked to bring 2-3 inspirational images to work from and will leave at the end of the class with their own painting. And don’t worry about a cluttered photo! Frankland will help students navigate what to highlight and minimize in the final work.

Next class: Wednesday evenings, beginning January 9, 2019 from 6:00-8:00pm. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class. We must have minimum 5 students or the class will be cancelled. Register on the calendar page.

Monday, October 8, 7:00-9:00pm  At this Ladies Art Night we will be creating fall wooden trays. We have 3 designs for you to choose from. The wood rounds are 15″ and will be stained before we paint. You will be using vinyl stencils, paint, Mod Podge and tools to attach your hardware. These trays come out so cute. They make a great centerpiece or fall accent piece.

Tickets for Fall Trays are $31.00. Pre-pay using our ticket button. There are 20 seats available for this class. All materials will be provided.

You are welcome to bring your favorite snacks & beverages.
