Classes in May

If you haven’t tried this amazing painting experience, here’s the next chance to explore this colorful medium!  Immerse yourself in vivid colors of this process-art experience.  All materials are provided for you to create several pieces of art, including canvas, paper, and tile.  A smock and gloves are suggested, as the ink can stain. Join SuzAnne for this relaxing class and try something new! 

Wednesday, May 22
6:30 – 8:30 PM


We will schedule another Alcohol Inks Class
soon, so stay tuned! 

This class is back by popular demand! This class will be teaching  a funnel technique, and a ring pour to create a geode-like design. You will also have the opportunity to add embellishments like crushed stones and glitter! 

This class is for adults and kids ages 13 and older. 

Our last Acrylic Pour Class sold out very quickly, and there is limited space in the gallery so the class size will be small. We suggest signing up in advance to make sure you reserve your spot!

Upcoming Classes 

It’s finally Spring and artists are excited to plein air paint again!  Or at least, pretend to!

This watercolor painting will take you to a beautiful “Spring Meadow” in the Spring Street studio of SCAHC.  You will learn a variety of watercolor techniques to create painting, and all your materials will be provided. Come and paint with SuzAnne and enjoy a relaxing evening.

Welcome summer with some Kite Flying! Make Glass Kite Suncatchers to decorate your home. This is a great opportunity to experiment with glass as an artistic medium. Marcelle will take the pieces back to her workshop to fire and then you can pick them up from the gallery when they are finished.
