Kids Paint at Art in the Gardens

Saturday, August 6
from 12PM to 1:45PM with Miss Rossi 
at the MCBG Vegetable Garden

This beginning acrylic painting classes are tailored to children ages 9 and older. Each student will take home their very own 11" x 14" painting on artist's canvas!  We'll listen to music as Miss Rossi guides students step by step in creating an imaginative painting they'll be proud of. Canvas, paints & brushes are all included in the price of this class, so all you need to bring is a smile! This is a beginning acrylic painting class, so no experience is necessary.
