Carthage Arts Academy

Painting Class Information

Painting classes and lessons through the Carthage Arts Academy allow students of all ages and skill levels to build their abilities and knowledge of painting with acrylics. Students will explore color, color mixtures, values and hues, and how to use and care for their painting materials — all while creating a variety of projects based on their skill levels. This course of study will give students a chance to be creative while also learning valuable skills and experimenting with the medium.
