Anne Black’s “Joy of Acrylics” workshop, held October 30 at Eastport Arts Center, was a busy afternoon during which attendees were encouraged to experiment and have some messy art fun. Students were guided by Black through the steps of painting, brushing, dragging and raised stenciling. They learned how to use their colors and ‘go with the flow,’ then went home with a well organized 12-color acrylic paint kit which included everything needed to continue to create at home. 

Next up at EAC is Needle Felting for ages 12 and up, 1-4 pm on Sunday, November 21, with Ann Cannizzaro, a longtime EAC instructor. Space is limited; to register, email alison@eastportartscenter.org. Support for both workshops has been provided by Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
