About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, March 12, 2022.

Acrylics are one of the most accessible, versatile, and least toxic mediums for painting. With quick drying times, ability to be thinned or cleaned up with water, a large variety of mediums to stretch drying time, add texture or volume, acrylics make a great choice for beginning painters. With instructor guidance, the student will choose a project that will help them gain skills in the basics: composition, form, contrast, and color. Both historical and contemporary practices of this art form will be reviewed.

Students cannot miss first class. Get materials list online.

Pay What You Can: We understand that our activity fees may be a barrier to participation for some members of our community. If you are unable to pay the full fee amount, you may use the discount feature at check-out to pay what you can.

Donate: Portland Parks & Recreation relies on customer activity fees to make public programs possible. If you have the financial means, please consider making a donation to PP&R’s “Community Access Fund” at check-out (see the “Donation” drop-down list.). This fund helps us serve those in need. Thank you for your support.

Note on mediums for acrylics: various mediums can stretch the drying time, however the instructor demonstrates with Golden's OPEN acrylics in class and recommends it as it stays wet longer, extending the working time of the paint surface.
