During the 2.5-hour intro to painting class, instructors arm students with paint, brushes, palettes, and canvases while imparting the foundations of painting, including color mixing, technique, and composition. Painters channel the work of master artist Van Gogh to render impressionist masterpieces of sunflowers or create a painted opus of their own making. Upon completing the class, artists can tote the acrylic fruit of their labor home for mantelpiece exhibitions.

ATX Art Classes
Megan Jaster's enthusiasm for the visual arts reached a fever pitch while she studied painting and philosophy at Texas State University, where world-renowned artists and mentors helped her realize the infinite ways with which to color a canvas. At ATX Art Classes, Jaster coaxes her students' inner impressionists to the surface by teaching them various painting techniques, composition, and tips for overcoming mental obstacles. Her classes accommodate the needs of both novice and experienced artists, and take cues from history's most celebrated painters, including Van Gogh, Degas, and Kahlo. The studio's painting workshops allow participants to freely lob brushstrokes at canvasses to create their own masterpieces depicting ballerinas, lost lovers, or jilted ears.
