Title: Painting the Impressionist Style: Acrylic Painting Class


To reserve your spot:

Instructor: Aimée Harbin

Class Description: Using portions of impressionist styled paintings as inspiration, we will try our hand at masters’ style of applying the paint as well as study their use of color to give the viewer the “impression” of the scene or objects.

Aimée is an art educator and has years of experience teaching. Some work outside the class will enhance your class experience.
