FAQ's about our Acrylic Painting
What if I'm going to miss a class?
No problem! Every misses class once in a while :) We actually record all our lessons and put them inside our private online community AND we give you access to all our Open Studios so that you have plenty of make up time in the studio. We also have printed handouts of the lesson as well. Best of all, there's a teacher at Open Studio to help with any questions that arise while you're working. It's really quite an amazing deal!
What will the classes be like?
For each class we begin together in our comfy couch area where we take time to get to know each other a little more each week. Then Shannon will explain a painting concept and demonstrate the lesson on a canvas. After that students paint their own canvas to practice the lesson while Shannon walks around for questions and help. You can continue your learning and growth in our online community where we post tips and tricks for all our classes!
Why do you practice on canvas?
Painting a canvas can feel intimidating...we want it to turn out a certain way. We paint on canvas every night so that you can enjoy the benefits of canvas while overcoming the expectations of what it "should be."
Who will be in my class?
Your class will be adults who are looking to relax, be creative and express themselves. In special occasions, we let mature teens into our classes as well. There will be no more than 15 students total and everyone is nice and supportive.
What if I have absolutely no experience?
No experience is great! We can teach you all the fundamentals of painting in about 6-8 weeks. Our curriculum offers absolute beginner assignments through challenge assignments so that you can actually choose what you want to paint and what feels like the just-right challenge for you.
How do I prepare for my first night?
For your first night, make sure you know our address and leave early so that you can get settled in with a cup of tea and not feel rushed. You do not need to bring any supplies. You may want to think about how you are dressed for making art.
How much individual instruction will I get?
After teaching the painting lesson, Shannon will walk around the room so that you can get individual instruction whenever you need it. This allows for you to get into the flow and not be bothered OR get any help you need just depending on your mood for the evening!
