The first and third Tuesdays of each month, bring your current work to get a critique. Are you stuck in the middle of a painting? Would fresh eyes help? Do you want to learn more about composition or color balancing? We help each other improve. Sign up with Kathy Klein (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get on the email reminder list. 10am – 12pm Cost: Free
Color Your Canvas – ADULTS
Color Your Canvas-Adults is a popular paint class at Arts On Main taught by Christina Micket. This class is a fun way to get creative and introduce the basics of painting without all of the intimidation of staring at a blank canvas! Instruction is given through every step of the painting, and additional help is given to those who need it. Cost includes all art supplies.
If you enjoy painting with company and getting good advice, bring your art and supplies and paint with us. On select Open Studio mornings there may be a live model or a speaker on a topic that is relevant to artists.

Learn to use acrylics to paint abstracts from mixing colors to planning a series of paintings! In this class you’ll receive advice on paints, brushes, starting a painting, analyzing it, and more.
