December 7, 2023 @ 2:30 am - 5:00 pm

Marcy Wheeler 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.

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

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 student’s highest expectations. And she helps some students learn how to stop when it is finished!

Tuition is $120 for six classes for RAA members, for non-members, tuition is $140. No Class on Thanksgiving!! See blue sidebar for a materials list.

In addition to teaching at Rossmoor, Wheeler has taught at Lafayette Studio, Walnut Creek Civic Arts, Yosemite Art Center and for more than 22 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 at UC Berkeley. She is a founding member of Bay Area Studio Artists.
