Learn as a group to paint a unique detail of the Mill’s architecture in a monochromatic palette with earth tones, using gels, and acrylics mixed with sand to create a textural effect and give an old look to the overall artwork. Lydia Panart will guide you step by step through the painting process on a 20”X20” surface. You will explore a variety of techniques in a fun and relaxed environment.

No experience necessary, 12 y.o. + . Register individually or work as a pair on the same canvas.
