OCTOBER 15, 6 - 8 PM Want to learn the easy technique of pour, or fluid, painting? Pour, or fluid, painting is a painting method created by using acrylic paint to pour on a surface to create a flowing design. While paint pouring is simple to create and understand, there are many different techniques to try to create different flowing patterns. Join Cindy Griffith in being introduced to fluid painting. No experience needed other than a willingness to experiment and let the painting “flow.” To celebrate October, we will use a palette of fall colors: reds, golds and browns. This is a fun way to experience painting in a new and relaxed way.
OCTOBER 23, 2 - 4 PM (Saturday) Join Katie O'Rourke for family painting time where you and your children can create owl paintings to take home. Ages 8+, discounts for multiple children.
November 19, 6 - 8 PM Get in the mood for winter by painting birch trees with instructor Katie O'Rourke. DECEMBER 17, 6 -8 PM TBD (more info later)
