Art Party, "Stained Glass Trees" at DIG YOGA

Come join New Hope artist and DIG member, Dar James, for this fun, unique painting workshop. As we head toward the winter holidays, come and spend a chilly afternoon making a special piece of art to gift to yourself or someone special. This is not the copy-the-example kind of paint party— it’s a personal, creative experience with a unified “tree” theme. Your 12x12" painting will be created on a pre-primed, stretched canvas with acrylic paints in a color palette that speaks to you!

We will use finger-painting, "graffiti," positive and negative space, we’ll experiment with a variety of tools, mark-making, and use metallic and iridescent colors that will light up your work.

Designed for all skill levels! No art experience necessary, just curiosity!

Cost: $75.00 includes instruction, all materials, and a Sunday afternoon full of creative, soul food with kindred spirits.
