Have fun painting more than what meets the eye

In this class you'll explore both abstract and non-representational painting techniques to create a unique painting in a laid-back atmosphere. We'll incorporate painting practice, presentation, demonstration, individual instruction, and group discussion for a well-rounded learning experience.

This class is great for those with minimal painting experience, those who enjoy painting regularly, and those who would like to branch out into abstract painting with acrylics. Come experience for yourself why we are regularly voted Athens' favorite place to take an adult creative class!

Age

This class is for adults, ages 18 and up.

Class Size

Enjoy ample space and personal attention; this class is limited to a maximum of eight students.

Experience Level

We welcome all students into our classrooms, but it's usually best (and most enjoyable) for you to choose a class designed for your goals, experience level, and skillset. This class is great for Level 3 (Apprentice) and Level 4 (Intermediate) students.
