The participants will bring in and loosely draw images they choose and then paint and Mrs Pidgeon will go around the room and assist participants during a 2 hour class that will teach them about painting with acrylic paint and all the variables that includes. It is a class for all levels so that from the beginner to the expert, or anyone who just wants a regular time to paint with other artists will be given assistance with the painting they choose.
