Paint with us! This acrylic painting class is perfect for beginners and those with "not a creative bone in my body." We will create a beach scene abstract painting. Intimidated by paint brushes? that's fine, because we won't be using them much. You will be guided step-by-step in how to paint this ocean scene the abstract way....using palette knives, cardboard, and even that old Food City card. We will start with a bright underpainting that will peek through giving the piece life.

Feel free pour yourself a beachy cocktail and prepare to relax and get lost in making art.

About the teacher:

Lisa Denney has been drawing and painting since the 8th grade. After ditching studies in biology, she earned a degree in art from the University of West Georgia, and that led to a career in rug and carpet design. She rented a studio in 2015 to get the rug design out of the house, and found a community and motivation to make art. She comes from a long line of women that enjoy crocheting and knitting and the awful craft of “plastic canvas.” She currently makes her home in Chattanooga with her man and her cat.
