If you enjoy “paint and sips” but are looking to expand your skills a little beyond “follow along paint nights”, this class is right for you. Andrew will impart some general knowledge to help new artists get started as well as offer a relaxed fun atmosphere for those already creating.

A studio style space will accommodate open discussion among participants and allow students to bounce ideas off each other as well as the instructor. This will be an open media class and many skills taught will universally cover all media. Time will be taken to tailor techniques to each individual’s chosen media.

New Artists:

Andrew will guide you through choosing a media that is right for you and selecting materials that will get you started. Expect instruction on setup, proper use, techniques, and general information on how to help you create a finished product and get the results you want. Feel free to stop by Howard's in advance to select the medium that is best for you.

Please bring reference images.

Spring Supply Swap

Spring Supply Swap

SPRING SUPPLY SWAP

Sunday, April 28th 10am-2pm

SPRING CLEAN UP TIME!

I know none of us have too many art supplies but sometimes we have things we know we will likely never use again. Howard’s will be hosting a spring Art Supply Yard Sale/Exchange/Giveaway/Swap, whatever you want to call it! You can sell your supplies, you can trade your supplies for someone else’s supplies or you can just give away your supplies! It is totally up to you! There are about 20 spaces available.

Think of this like a community yard sale, everyone is responsible for their own sales or exchanges and bringing their own tables. This swap is restricted to just art supplies/equipment. The exchange will take place indoors unless it is nice out that day and then we may move some people outdoors. There is limited space so we recommend everyone sticking to a card table size or similar.

This swap is open to everyone! If you are only interested in purchasing materials and don’t have anything to sell, you don’t need to sign up, just show up!

We will have lemonade and hotdogs (depending on weather).

Please contact us for more details. To sign up and reserve a space use the button below.

Sign up no later than April 20th!
