Park Painting Classes are an

amazing opportunity for students of all artistic abilities!

 We meet outside at the beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park.  In each of our MONTHLY painting classes, students will be taught classical painting techniques which are outlined in each class's painting description below. Students use artist-grade materials in acrylic mediums on stretched canvas. 

We teach our students step-by-step instructions to master new skills according to their individual level and ability. We guide our students to use proper techniques to achieve a painting they are proud of!   In each class, students will complete their painting to take home- ready to be framed!

Students will be blown away at what they can paint!
