Academy Mask Policy – Fall 2021

 

Any student under the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their camp/class. For any participant age 18+, masks are highly recommended and encouraged regardless of vaccination status.

 


 

Come enjoy a peaceful, easy to learn, painting technique using a palette knife.  Together, we will paint a step-by-step fall scene to introduce you to a new world of acrylic color and texture.  Palette knife painting is challenging but also very enjoyable, so come give it a try!  Each student will make and take a 12×12 canvas. All supplies provided.
