This will truly be a workshop experience!
Painting can be easy with a studio class to guide the beginner. This workshop will begin with the essential elements needed to paint successful pictures.
Here you can learn “hands on” how to put a painting together right away. As we paint, we will learn about composition, value, color, temperature, and drawing. From the tools and materials you need to the basic techniques, it's all covered in this class.  Just bring your desire to create a pleasing composition and this class will show you the joy of achieving your masterpiece.

NOTE: A maximum of 10 students will be allowed. Some prior experience in painting before taking this class would be beneficial.

All painting supplies will be provided by GRACE with the exception of the oil painting canvas, an easel and watercolor paper. If you find that your child becomes very interested in painting, you can then begin to invest in your own materials of brushes, paints, etc. Painting supplies can be found at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, T-Square, or try Blick Studio at 1-800-828-4548 (for a free catalog-great prices!) or
