Acrylic Painting Class Series for Adults 55+ at New Canaan Library

Lifetime Arts: Acrylic Painting Class Series on Tuesdays starting October 17th from 1:00-2:30 PM in the Anderson Maker Lab

We are delighted to offer a 9-week beginning landscape painting course for adults ages 55 and over. These classes will be a fun and informative introduction to acrylic painting, covering basic color theory, composition, and approaches to painting. Additional elements that will be explored include color paint mixing and basic brush strokes. Participants will complete at least two landscape paintings using supplied images for inspiration. The class will culminate in a class exhibition and reception at the library.

Classes will be held weekly on Tuesdays from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in the Anderson Maker Lab. Classes will begin on October 17th.
