There is an over-abundance of used canvases that Neal has gesso'ed to be used again. They also have a ton of up-cycled paint. SO... they decided to have a 50% off painting event! This is the PERFECT opportunity to paint if you've been hesitant about it previously.
NOTE: Ticket holders will be using used canvases and paint from previous events.
Neal will lead the group in painting "Forest Fire" as well as provide goofy, yet entertaining, art history anecdotes all while teaching painting techniques, color theory and other art related skills. You'll walk away with some knowledge of art techniques, an original painting of your own, and having had a great time.
Bring your beverage of choice to enjoy as you paint. Painting will begin promptly at 6:30.
