Acrylic Painting Class at Remington Museum
February 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum continues its series of adult art classes with an acrylic painting class on Tuesday, February 12, from 10 AM to noon. Accomplished local artist Paul N. Pedersen will introduce the use of acrylic paint and acrylic mediums, guiding participants through a range of techniques.
“This is a great opportunity to discover some of the unique properties of acrylic paint,” says Museum Education Specialist Laura Desmond. “They’re malleable, fast-drying, and lend themselves beautifully to layering. I’m sure participants will be surprised at what they can do with this versatile medium.”
The class will be taught at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center, 323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg. All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials.The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants. Call 315-393-2425 or email [email protected] to ask questions or sign up, or visit fredericremington.org to register online.
