Get your art vibes flowing. This month's featured artist is Claude Monet.
This series of classes is based on the many recognizable painting styles of famous artists. You'll learn a little history about each artist as ACMC President Gemma Ziegler guides you through a fun and easy step-by-step process to creating a painting in an artist's particular style.
January 18th's class will focus on Monet's beautiful impressionist style. You can choose your favorite Monet painting to recreate or follow Gemma's lead with her favorite. Either way, we hope to see you. It's all about having fun, learning, being creative.
The Paint Bar Class begins at 6 and runs approximately 2.5 hours. You will leave with a completed acrylic painting. (if it's not dry you are welcome to leave it here overnight.) $28.00 per person all materials provided. To register, message us here, call or stop by the arts council in person.
We must have a minimum of 5 students to hold class.
Please note: We cannot serve wine but you are welcome to bring your own.

"Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love."
"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers."
"The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration."
