Drawing Class

Acrylic Painting Workshop

Join us to explore acrylic painting techniques with renowned artist Juan Manuel Alonso.  Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint containing pigment suspension in acrylic polymer emulsion.  Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, media, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.

Thursdays: 3:00pm – 5:00pm. $7 members per class / $10 non-members, excluding materials such as brushes, paints, canvas pad, glass bottles, etc., brought from home or easily ordered online; check supplies list when signing up at the Mizell ticket window or call 760-323-5689 ext. 107

Fridays: 9:00am – 11:30am. $5 for members per class / $10 non-members, materials not included.

The Laughter Clinic – Fun thru Improv Games & Exercises

“Whether you’re guffawing at a sitcom or giggling at a cartoon, laughing does you good. Laughter is a great way to become healthier and happier, and that’s no joke:

* Short-term: stimulate many organs, relax you, reduce stress

* Long-term: strengthen immune system, relieve pain/anxiety.”   – The Mayo Clinic
