WITH SHELLY BANKS
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
$80 + Supply List
Class Limit: 12 Students
Come and spend the day painting this adorable scene of a frog on a flower!
Shelly will start off by guiding you on how to grid your canvas and how to sketch the main areas of your piece. You will then learn how to mix colours and apply paint to create a background that blocks in the focal points of your project. Finally, you will learn the techniques you need for bringing out the finer details and finishing your very own frog on a flower painting.
This will be a relaxed and fun-filled class!
