Acrylic Painting Classes

Katie O'Rourke, Vermont Artist and Teacher

As a teacher and an artist I believe in the PROCESS of creativity.  My goal is for you to enjoy the experience and be present in it. I teach classes to children and adults both in person and online.   My classes and workshops vary throughout the year and I am always available for birthday parties and paint nights!

Acrylic Painting Classes ~ Adult (In Person)

Adult classes are for high school age and up!

Tuesdays from January 4 - March 22

No Class February 22 & March 1


Morning Beginner Class 9-10:30 am

This class will focus on the basics of acrylic painting. How to take care of your supplies, color mixing, value and learn how to have fun while creating! Previous students are welcome as I am always changing things up!


Evening Beginner to Intermediate Class 6-7:30 pm   FULL

This class will also focus on color mixing and value while adding different inspiration throughout the course.  We may study a famous artist, paint from your own photo, dive into an abstract project or work on a still life. Let's have fun and explore!

Spaces are limited to 8 students per class, and we will be using the Drawing Board's Classroom down the hall from my studio at 24 Main Street, Montpelier.

My 12 year old has taken both in person and online classes with Katie. She looks forward to them each week, wishes she could take a class several times per week and practices what she learns. Katie's teaching style is relaxed, fun and engaging. I recommend taking a class from her. It is well worth the price.
