"Monet Inspired: By the Sea"

Paint Night @ the Library

a Makery @ Middletown Project

Class led by artist and director of Rockdale Art Center Veronica Batter

 


Have you always wanted to take a painting class? Are you looking for something fun and creative to do in your free time? This is the place for you! Come find your inner artist and learn basic skills in acrylic painting. The instructor will provide an example painting and walk the students through step-by-step instructions to create a finished product that they would be proud to hang in their home.

The painting Veronica will be teaching us how to paint is inspired by the Monet painting Cliffs and Sailboats at Pourville and you will be able to customize your paintings with color. If there are couples in the class, the painting can stretch across two canvases.

 
Discover your inner artist while having fun with friends and fellow Library patrons at Paint Night! Follow along with local artist Veronica Batter of the Rockdale Art Center as she teaches us how to create a masterpiece.
