Acrylic Painting

January 9, 2019  6:00-8:00pm

Liz 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. Wednesday evenings, five weeks.  Register  HERE. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class.

Zentangle with Tannins


Pam Signorelli, teacher
Learn Zentangle

October 29, 6:30-8:30pm.   Making art is always therapeutic because it involves contemplation, self expression and reflection, but Zentangle Art has earned a place in Psychology Today. See this article by Cathy Malchiodi PhD,  in which she shares its qualities:

It’s self soothing
It’s simple
It teaches how to own mistakes
It reinforces aimlessness

Pam Signorelli teaches two classes at Articipate this fall: Oct. 29th and Nov. 1st. Come and try it! This time it’s Tannins and Tangles; random tea and wine rings combine with thoughtful patterns; a great contrast! What will Pam Signorelli think up next? $26 per person. All materials provided.
