I don't have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting and will ensure that you stay on track to completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, only "happy accidents" but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making it easy to make your masterpiece perfect.
