Registration open through 4/24/2019 11:59 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)


If you have taken a few painting classes and want to try something new - this class is for you. Delve into color relationships, learn new techniques to apply paint, and experiment with creating images from a different viewpoint. Your instructor will guide you through a variety of techniques to expand your options for self-expression. Bring acrylic paint materials and tools that you normally use and a recent painting to the first class. The list of supplies required for this class can be found on the Classes for Adults page under the column marked 'class supplies' next to the class.

About Us



Danforth Art is a Museum and School that invites you to see, learn about, create, and be inspired by art. From the very beginning, Danforth Art has offered a robust series of studio art classes, workshops, and other offerings. During its first term, starting March 1, 1975, Danforth art offered beginning and advanced courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, and other disciplines. And, although our programming has changed over the years, the goal was, and remains, to provide consistently high-quality art-making experiences, taught by professional artists and art educators, and to use authentic works of art to inspire creativity and inquiry in our studios. There are no museum galleries or exhibitions currently in this building.
