Join us Sunday, April 22nd for a Decorative Painting workshop with Sharon Hamilton featuring DecoArt Traditions a professional grade artists’ acrylic.
Learn how to paint using the basic techniques fundamental to acrylics. These techniques are often used in decorative painting when depicting delicate flowers, fruits, still-lifes and more. These techniques can be used on canvas as well as nontraditional surfaces like baskets, trays, furniture and other household items. Sharon has been teaching painting classes for 30+ years and can guide you through how to develop your own unique painting using the skill taught in the class. No drawing skills are required for the class because you will be working from a line drawing of the design.
Ticket price is $100, which includes the intensive 9 AM - 5 PM workshop, and all the materials you'll need, including an array of artist quality brushes, paints, palette, palette knife and panels for painting. Workshop will be held at First Position dance studio, just next door at 19 W Lancaster Ave.
