Our third art class was about Introduction to Acrylic Landscapes. The class was held at the Cottonwood Art Center and was taught by Ben Biers. Students learn how to use acrylic paint to work on landscapes and backgrounds to foreground with a simple, loose approach to mark-making. Some of the students used personal photos to create their own masterpiece. Everyone had an amazing time. We had eight veterans and two family members attended to the class.
After the class, we enjoyed pizza and refreshments while admiring everyone's masterpieces that participants get to take home. Huge thank you to the Cottonwood Art Center and thanks to everyone who made this class possible.
