‘Painting in acrylics is not only easy, it’s also a lot of fun, even for those who believe they don’t have any talent or artistic skills,” said Acacia Rogers who will teach a six-week course in acrylic painting, a course designed for beginners and intermediate artists.

The classes will be held at the Lakes Region Artists Association Gallery, 120 Laconia Road, (Tanger Outlets) suite 132, in Tilton, every Saturday, beginning Jan. 12, until Feb. 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The course will focus on learning about pigments, the differences between paint brands, types of materials needed, color mixing and on how to create and complete a beautiful acrylic painting to be proud of.

To sign-up and for a list of materials to bring and cost for the course, contact AcaciaRogersArt@gmail.com or visit the gallery from Thursday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., to register.
