Beginning Acrylics


Adult / Art -
Adult Winter/Spring 2024

Don't put off your creative adventures anymore! Learn the art of painting with acrylic. This beginners course is designed for those who have never picked up a brush before and those who have dabbled in acrylics but want to learn more. Students will learn by following practical demonstrations that will help them build confidence while introducing the concepts, tools, and techniques required to create your own works of art. 

Supplies will be discussed on the first day of class and a supply list will be handed out. 

Vanessa Merry

Vanessa Merry moved to Florence, Italy at the age of eighteen to study the methods of the great masters in painting, drawing, and printmaking at Palazzo Spinelli. From here she continued her education and exploration of the human-figure, still-life’s, and landscapes at Atelier de Chimere in France where she enjoyed Plein-Air painting in the French countryside. She moved back to the United States where she attended and graduated from the University of Minnesota in Visual Arts and Art History.

She has been actively involved in the Twin Cities art scene for many years. Vanessa Merry has won several awards for her paintings in local galleries. She has worked with many different galleries and art organizations in the cities.

Vanessa currently enjoys creating works of art in many different styles but finds herself happiest when she is in the classroom teaching others all the skills that she has acquired in her studies.
