    —————
    The painting for class is the one pictured in this post. For this first class we will be painting Pop Art Leaves. Class participants will be encouraged to be creative and make it your own. This is a free event. You will need to have painting supplies at home. Below we have provided a supply list and some links with where to order supplies online. You can also find all supplies at Walmart. If you already have painting supplies at home, but do not have the exact same type or colors of paint or supplies, no worries! We can improvise!
    ————-

    Acrylic paint: In class we tend to use affordable, craft level, fluid acrylic paint. Walmart brand is Apple Barrel. Michaels is Craft Smart. Online dickblick.com has many options and we have included a link to a few choices. If you prefer to use heavier bodied acrylic paint or another brand that is fine. You can pick colors you prefer, the goal is to have fun and make these paintings your own. The colors used in this painting were comparable to cobalt blue/bright blue, fuchsia/magenta, a red, a bright yellow, a green blue/turquoise, white, and a warm green (yellow tones as opposed to blue)
