Sunday Painters

Sunday Painters meets the second Sunday afternoon of each month, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.  This is not a "class" per se.  It is a free and fun way for folks to try new mediums and subjects.  A3L provides all materials free of charge for your first two sessions.  We have a different project and medium that we work on each month.  Sunday Painters is always free and always open to the public, but we ask that after your first two sessions you join A3L, and if you can  that you bring your own materials.  
We only take 8 people, so call 828-668-1100 sign up early.  You must be registered by the Wednesday beforehand.

May.  No Sunday Painters.  Enjoy Mothers Day with your family.

June.  Landscape painting with Helen Sullivan.

Paper Collage Art

Instructor: Suzanne Snyder

I consider doing collage as, "painting with paper".  We will be making beautiful landscapes.  When finished your picture will look wonderful if you decide you’d like to frame it or give it as a gift!

Your supplies will consist of a 11x14 crescent board on which you will create your art, provide handmade papers, a medium for adhesion, brushes, metal leaf, and if you choose them, found objects. Also included will be various color magic makers.  You may bring wording or any handmade papers you might want to use that may have special meaning for you. If you have any extra papers etc. you’d like to share you are welcome to also bring them. If time allows, we can even experiment with some acrylic spattering.  The sky's the limit!

This is a class to have fun and use your imagination.

Students ALREADY familiar with working in scratchboard may bring their own reference or chose from some the instructor has that challenge them more than the beginners references. Move to the next level in creating artwork that is striking and grabs attention. They may also add color to their piece if they so desire and time allows.
