Bria Tyler 

Get inspired by the art on view in our galleries, and work with a local artist to create painted portraits!  

Together, we’ll learn about the parts of the face and use plexiglass and paint to create our very own portraits. We’ll practice our observation skills and engage in the exciting task of “tracing” the face of our caregiver through a clear surface, resulting in beautiful, unique portraits that the whole family will treasure! Each participant will leave with a handpainted, plexiglass portrait, ready for display.

*A caregiver, parent, or guardian must be present for the duration of this class.

10:30–11:30 AM
Members $15; Nonmembers $20
