A macro painting is one in which the size of the subject matter in the painting is larger than it is in real life. This style of art making is fun, challenging, and produces dramatic, powerful results. Join us as we create macro paintings using acrylic paint on canvas in this unique workshop. This workshop will encourage adult artists of all abilities to work out of the box, learn new skills, and have an enjoyable experience making art at the Michener.

Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with special exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; adults who participated in our art classes continue to bring new insights and find new challenges in this series of programs.
