Acrylic Painting with Marcy Wheeler/ Thursdays 2:30-5/ Studio 2/ June 29-August 3__NEW 6 weeks

New Shorter session: 6 weeks.

Marcy Wheeler’s classes are a safe and fun place to become a better painter.

You may be a beginner, intermediate or advanced artist. The class is on Thursdays 2:30-5 pm.
Enroll in this class and if you like it, stay in the class. Group discussion is helpful, and your fellow painters grow to understand your process.

Acrylic paints are amazing!  Learn about the mediums that are essential to a rich and deep acrylic painting.

Wheeler’s style is warm and friendly. She focuses on individual instruction, group discussion and occasional class demonstrations. Students learn the quick and creative qualities of acrylic paints and mediums and how to turn acrylic paints into a flexible and luscious way to paint.

Wheeler encourages students to try new tools, explore new ways of working and move toward their own style. She gives the encouragement needed to stay with a painting until it exceeds the class members highest expectations. And she helps some students learn how to stop when it is finished!

Tuition is $120 for 6 classes, for non members, tuition is $140. If you want to continue after you have finished 6 classes, you just buy more lessons and stay in the class. Class members learn from each other as well as from Marcy.

In addition to teaching at Rossmoor, Wheeler has taught at Lafayette Studio, Walnut Creek Civic Arts, Yosemite Art Center and for more than 18 years at her own studio. Wheeler has a BFA in Painting from the University of Illinois, and she studied for many years in the studio of Louise Smith, a painting instructor emeritus at UC Berkeley.
