Swinton’s Art Supply & Instruction’s cadre of gallery-showing artists generously imparts sizeable painterly savvy upon fledgling Monets during interactive art classes. The three-hour sampler art class kicks off with an instructional demonstration to elucidate essential painting techniques such as brush strokes and setting traps for free-range muses. Pupils then employ their newly minted know-how to animate provided canvases with inspired daubs of watercolour, oil, or acrylic. The watercolour sampler class schools participants on how best to wrangle the notoriously free-spirited aqueous pigments into dynamic artworks, students in the acrylic class explore the medium’s easily modified properties, and oil students learn basic manipulation techniques. As an added bonus, artists receive 15 per cent off art supply purchases scooped up on the day of their class. All supplies are included.
