Laura Cameron
The series kicks off on Wednesday, January 17th with Adventures in Painting: Mixed Media with Acrylic with Laura Cameron. This is a step-by-step painting class designed for beginners and experienced alike. Participants will see a complete example while following along to live painting to go from blank canvas to completed painting.

Materials and techniques will be introduced in a series of steps to complete an 11X14 or 12X12 mixed media painting, beginning with the general shapes and larger background areas first, using acrylic paint and mediums for mixed media techniques. The second part of the class will be spent with adding details with increasingly smaller brushes.

Then, come on back for more:
