After-School Art Lessons
Posh Paint Pub offers after-school art lessons for students 8+ (3rd grade and up)!
Our art lessons cover a range of mediums and techniques- from beginner watercolor painting to advanced acrylic painting! Our lessons are broken down into 1 month sessions with one lesson a week on Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 6:00pm. Each session focuses on developing a student’s skill in a particular medium and, at the end of the 4 weeks, the students will have a completed project (in the studied medium) to take home. All of our art sessions max out at 6 students to ensure an intimate learning environment.
Registration for our art lessons opens on August 1, 2019 and our first lesson begins on September 5, 2019. Scroll for more info on our different sessions.
Payment is made in full upon scheduling your first class.
