Join us as we learn acrylic techniques on natural materials. We will use mixed media to explore how to take elements from nature and make them extraordinary. Rocks, sticks, clay, wood, and feathers may seem unconventional when compared to canvas, but they can be transformed into breathtaking pieces with just a little paint.
Attendees will need to bring the following supplies: one package of synthetic brushes of different sizes, and an acrylic paint pack of various colors.
