We began the painting project at the Willard Hope Center this past week.

Student members eagerly began the process of giving their canvases a base coat of acrylic paint.

For many of the students it was their first encounter with painting on canvas with acrylics.

It was an exciting beginning for everyone as to learn to use a  brush and create uniform strokes to cover their canvas.

Energy was high as everyone busily covered their blank canvas with a bright color.

Next week we will begin to mix colors and add shapes to the canvases.

It was lots of fun to interact with the student members and see their eagerness to participate.

We began our summer painting class with a blank canvas last week.

The beginning is always the hardest part of starting the creative process.

Participants really jumped into the process of covering the canvas with their ideas in paint.

Starting with an idea and allowing it to flow over the canvas is the beginning concept for the first session of the expressive painting class.

Studio time flew by as everyone enjoyed the initial experience in the studio.  I’m looking forward to seeing their work develop over the next several weeks.
