Acrylic Painting Workshop

Class Description

Join Cory Manley as he guides you step by step through one of his original paintings. Cory starts his classes by explaining the basics of acrylic paints, and will break down the steps of the painting before starting. He will also be painting his own in front of the class so everyone can follow along with him.

Cory likes to give his students the creative freedom to add or change whatever they want to the painting. No prior painting experience is needed! Cory excels in breaking down his painting into simple layers in which he says anyone can follow!  Join Cory for a fun night out with music, painting, and the chance to escape our daily routines through creating.

Cory will supply everything you need to come in, paint, and leave with your very own acrylic painting to take home. The only thing you need to bring is your creativity. The canvas size will be 14"x18".
