Do you love nature? This special acrylic class will teach you to paint amazing landscapes, GUARANTEED! We will cover all kinds of trees, clouds, the intricacies of water, mountains and so much more.
This class is special because it runs twice a month for an extended period and encourages students to paint on bigger canvas than our other classes, hence the theme "bigger is better!"
The hardest part is saying "yes" to yourself. Believing you deserve this creative me time. The easiest part is clearing your mind, leaving the day behind and getting into the creative flow!

FAQ's about our Acrylic Painting
What if I'm going to miss a class?
No problem! Every misses class once in a while :) With your membership, you have access to ALL our Open Studios each month to come in and paint. We have handouts with the step-by-step lesson you missed AND we video our lessons and post them in the online community! So many ways to stay in the loop!
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 with a fun question. Then Shannon will teach the lesson of the week and demonstrate the techniques on a canvas so you can watch it in action and ask questions. We offer 3 levels of challenge for the assignment so you can practice the lesson at the level that's just right for you. The rest of class is for you to paint and get individualized help, when needed. We focus on 1 lesson every 2 weeks so that you have ample time to complete your assignments.
Will we paint on canvas?
Absolutely! Canvas is great for holding paint (much better than paper) and it helps us conquer the fear we can have about canvas painting when we paint on it every single week.
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. Remember, our classes are ongoing so your first night could be someone else'sÂ 100th time coming! We will introduce you to everyone and help you feel at home.
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!
