What you'll learn in this acrylic painting class:

Always wanted to paint a portrait of yourself or a loved one? Come to the studio and we’ll break it down for you in creative and easy steps. We’ll cut up a photo you send in to create a collage guideline directly onto the canvas. Then using tints and shades of one color, you’ll paint over the collage to create the shadows and highlights of the face. Then you can add an additional color for details. The result? A beautiful abstract portrait! 

You will need to email your photo prior to start of class. More details after signing up.
