During this session, students will learn acrylic painting techniques such as over-painting, stippling, graffito, dry brush, and many more!  Over the course of the six week session, students will apply what they learn onto 2D materials (paper, canvas, and board).  The instructor will demonstrate various strategies for painting still life compositions, portraits, and/or landscapes.  Students will have the choice to follow the class example, or apply their skills to create a unique painting. 

This class is perfect for beginners and for experienced art students.  All are welcome!  Students will receive a sketchbook and will complete at least two canvases (or more) during this session.

Toddler Art Play at Sheena’s home studio

Where/When: Wednesdays, September 11th- October 16th.

Time: 10-10:45am, $10 a session or $55 for all six

Who: Best for almost walkers- 3yrs

Do you have a toddler at your house that is not quite preschool age but is interested in all the things?!! I do! I do!! Then please bring your toddler to my studio for Art Play! During the 45 minute sessions, I will provide an open-ended art experience (mostly outside- weather permitting) where the kids will explore multiple art materials and have fun in the PROCESS of art. Process art means the kids may not leave each session with a completed work of art, but they WILL leave with the experience of creating. This is perfect for this age group. I hope you join us. The kids will have a blast together as they navigate the wonderful world of art and play.
