  • Please choose this option only if you have a current NHAC membership. Choosing this option without a current membership delays finalizing your registration. Thank you.
  • Please choose this option if you do not have a current NHAC membership. If you are registering a student (grades k thru 12), please consider the $20 yearly student membership-it's the same cost as the $20 non-member fee!

    As an adult signing up for more than one class, it will cost less to add a yearly membership instead of paying the non-member fee for each class!

    Please click on the MEMBERSHIP tab for more information. Thank you.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this class is cancelled and will be rescheduled later in the session.  


This class focusses on expressionism and fauvism. This artistic style will ask the artist to depict not objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that objects/events arouse within a person. We will be experimenting with brushwork and saturated colors while working toward a distortion and abstraction of the image. Prior painting experience, understanding the basic concepts of value, and drawing the face and/or body will be helpful for this class. Please bring a black & white photograph/print-out of yourself/someone else and preferred acrylic supplies. Acrylic kits available through NHAC if ordered by registration deadline.
