Tap into your creative flow with our summer acrylic painting series!
Tap into your creative flow with our summer acrylic painting series. Local artists Victor Smith and Richard T. Spears will share their methods for making “wearable art” and painting on canvas. Supplies will be provided, but we encourage you to bring any clothing items you may want to transform into a new work of art. This event is made possible with the support of the City of New Haven.
