Acrylic Painting Workshop

Join us to explore acrylic painting techniques. 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
