Acrylic Painting

Description: Join instructor Jamie Moore and bring a friend to create a handmade work of art! Paint along with Jamie and make some unforgettable memories with others in a relaxed and supportive environment. No prior experience is needed. Let's be honest, these workshops are more like parties filled with laughter, camaraderie and creativity!

Jamie will provide everything you will need:

  • professional art instruction
  • one 16” x 20” pre-sketched canvas (we will paint a different picture each workshop)
  • step-by-step painting guide
  • acrylic paint
  • brushes
  • and all the tidbits that you will need for your painting

Just be sure to dress in old comfortable clothing and bring your creativity (and a snack if you want it).

Jamie will take you step-by-step through how to paint your art piece. You are the artist and are welcome to change up the colors or other details of your painting. At the end of the night you’ll have a handmade masterpiece along with memories you’ll cherish forever.

Painting is an extremely beneficial activity. Research shows that art reduces stress, boosts your confidence and sense of accomplishment, stimulates the imagination, and strengthens problem-solving abilities. Empower yourself through art!
