Work In Progress 

Intro To Acrylics with Darlene Clarke



In this class, Darlene teaches using a studio mentoring approach. It is an excellent way for beginners and more seasoned painters to gain confidence and skill in a relaxed, encouraging environment.  Students will start with a choice of reference pieces provided by Darlene, and then she will demonstrate the painting process step-by-step, while students follow along. Once the first piece is finished and the students are comfortable with the structure of the class, they will choose a new subject that inspires them and paint it. Darlene will provide ongoing guidance as the students work on each new piece. This is a great way to learn, solving common painting challenges with support readily available.


Thursday mornings  
9:30am – 12:00pm

“Well, that was money well spent.  I was very pleased with the Beginner Acrylics course.  Both with your instruction and the results.  I did not expect to learn so much in such a short period of time.  Thanks for your patience with a beginner, your excellent suggestions about techniques, and the advice on composition.  Am looking forward to continuing this course in the fall."  Cheers, Beth Rhind It's easy.
