This month all the Michaels Makers took a class at their local Michaels store. I’ve been wanting to get back into painting so I took an acrylics still life class!

The class came with a supplies list, which was all handily included in this starter kit (which I used a 50% off coupon on)

The kit included primary colors and white, as well as two canvases and the brushes I needed for the class.

The instructor set up the still life and we started painting!

I got lots of great information about the paint, how to get the colors i wanted, how to manipulate the midtones, and highlights etc.

Overall it was super relaxing to just sit and paint for a few hours.

And I felt like i learned a new skill that I would love to sit and practice with a still life composition of my own.

I had a blast taking a painting class at Michaels. There are so many other classes, I was surprised at how many different things you can learn there. Did you know that Michaels offers free classes in their stores? You can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies.

Another great way to explore your creativity is by trying out a craft kit. Michaels has everything from sewing kits to art kits and everything in between.
