Everyone will produce their own unique painting to take home with them! Artist and painting instructor, Danielle Bartlette, will help you step by step throughout the day to ensure there is clarity in all the painting processes. Techniques learned will also benefit your future artworks!
Learn about negative/positive space and how to layer up paints for depth, build up texture, use mixed media including additional materials (gold leaf, glitter) effectively, and learn when to be spontaneous and/or have more structure.
