Virginia Is for Painters is an acrylic painting class focused on painting scenes and landmarks of Lynchburg and the surrounding areas. In this class, we will learn how to work from reference images, practice space forming painting tools (such as linear and atmospheric perspective), and use our brush strokes to create texture found in nature. This class is for teens ages 13—17. No prior painting skills required!
