Freestyle Acrylic Painting Class

Freestyle Acrylic Painting is a class where you get to do whatever theme of a painting you would like while learning. Do you have a painting idea you would like to paint and would like to do it with the guidance of an instructor? This class is great for a beginner, student or recreational painter who enjoys being around other painters. Material for painting ideas are also in the studio so you can be inspired with your projects. Ernesto Guerra will be the lead instructor for this class that happens twice weekly. You will be able to leave your painting in the studio from class to class or take your canvas home to continue at your leisure. The studio has floor and table easels for you to set up your area. Ernesto will offer basic instruction and offer critics and guidance when you want it. Ernesto is a charming, gentle teacher, and his artwork is also featured in ART VallARTA.  If you are a short term tourist this class will also offer basic supplies and the ART VallARTa store on the ground level has many size canvases and any additional supplies you might want to use during or after the class. Ernesto is fluent in English and Spanish.
