    Acrylic (Mostly) Painting

    May/June intro special!

    Three classes, all supplies included for $100

    Classes must be taken by June 30th

    Same class, new location! 

    This is the same class taught at Artisan Culture Coffee, now at the WAL gallery with room for more! 

    If you are an absolute beginner, have ever been told by someone that art is not your strong point, or are coming bac after a years long hiatus, we have a welcoming group for you to join! 

    Basic information covered but experimentation is a strong point for this class!

    Some students in this class are trying cold wax and oil or oil glazing acrylics...if either of these interest you this is currently the only class where we dabble in these mysterious arts!

    Four Thursday morning classes are $100 for WAL members and those "grandfathered"; $100 for non-members. One make up date is included for each session which must be taken 30 days after last scheduled class.

    Members and nonmembers are invited to join us at our next general meeting on Saturday, July 9th from 10:00-12:00 at the WAL Gallery and Studio. Participants will hear all of the latest WAL news including upcoming classes, workshops, and exhibits as well as meet our new board members. After the business portion of our meeting, Mark Tusinski will demonstrate ceramic handbuilding and sculpture.

    Mark will discuss the basic properties of clay and how to prepare it for working with the medium. He will share the 3 basic techniques of ceramic hand building and sculpture and will also briefly compare and contrast hand building vs. potter's wheel techniques. Finally, Mark will create a few example pieces of sculpture to show how to apply the 3 basic techniques. 

    Clay will be available for everyone to participate in the fun, hands-on portion of the demo. Participants will learn how to make a small pot incorporating the 3 techniques of hand building.  (aka: how to properly play with mud).
