Virtual: A Cedarburg Winter: Acrylic Painting Workshop

Thursday, January 21:  9 am-12 pm

Wisconsin Winters are cold but they bring some of the most interesting lighting to paint. As you paint your own Cedarburg Winter masterpiece, you will have the opportunity to learn to build a painting from start to finish using different techniques, mixing values, and brush strokes in a step by step manner. Students will receive a digital image to work from or they may use one of their own. A supply list is available online.
