34. Anybody Can Be An Artist - Acrylic Art Painting Classes at Michaels 10/16/2010 thru 12/18/2010

Anybody can learn to be an artist! You can create a beautiful acrylic work of art in just two hours, suitable to frame and put on your wall.  Choose between making a landscape, floral, still life or seascape painting.  You’ll be surprised how fun and easy it can be.

For the low price of $27, Michaels is offering acrylic fine art classes hosted by Grumbacher, a leading brand of American manufactured paints.  A qualified instructor  (that's me) will lead you through the basics of starting and completing a painting.   Believe me, you will thoroughly enjoy the experience and will want to come back  to learn more.  Sign up for classes at the Michaels cashier and ask for the class supplies list.

Beginning in November, I will be teaching roughly every other week at the Michaels in Monroeville, Pennsylvania (3759 William Penn Hwy 412-856-6040) on Saturday mornings at at the Michaels in Greensburg, Pennsylvania (behind the Westmoreland Mall 724-837-4540) on Saturday afternoons.

If you take one of my classes, please be sure to fill out the survey form given on the handout you received in class.  Please check back if you are interested in taking additional classes.  I try to vary the lessons to ensure that nobody is forced to paint the same picture twice.  The whole experience has been a pleasure to me and I hope to see you in one of my classes soon!
