09nov10:00 am2nd Saturday: Acrylic Lion Finger Painting at the Center for the Arts10:00 am

Event Details

In this lesson, we’ll be “finger painting” the king of the jungle using no brushes and only bright acrylic colors. While finger painting may seem rudimentary, it provides an artist many benefits such as focusing on the artistic process instead of the finished product, stimulating one’s creativity and imagination, and strengthening finger and hand muscles. Enjoy XXV: The Silver Anniversary Exhibition before or after your lesson for free (donations accepted).
