Join us for one or more art classes that will expand your knowledge of painting techniques and improve your skills as an artist.  Our classes are designed to be easy to follow, informative and a lot of fun.  Our resident art instructor, Noreen Powell, has been with us since the inception of Paint Club in 2012.  Her positive and calm nature fosters an atmosphere of creativity and peace. This Fall and Winter we will also feature some guest artists and instructors  for select classes.

Classes are held at The Living Room Art Gallery, Located in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery’s Visitors Center: 48 Cemetery Ave., Menands, NY

Classes include paints (acrylic & oil), brushes, various sized canvas, and delicious baked goods from the famed Schuyler Bakery, gourmet coffees and teas and wonderful, positive energy.

Classes are $30 unless noted otherwise and due the morning before the start of class.
