Description: Whatever medium you choose to work with, it’s important to acquire certain basic skills so you can create successful paintings. In this class you will be introduced to the materials, equipment and techniques associated with painting all backed up by detailed step-by-step demonstrations. This class will get you started and build your confidence. No previous art experience is necessary or even preferred. The only requirement is a desire to learn so you can end up saying “So that’s how it’s done. I can do that  too!”
