Acrylic Painting Classes with Stephen Snider

October 1 – November 5, 2020

Thursdays. 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm. 6 week session

Schedule subject to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

* New for Fall 2020: Our base class prices have not increased, however we are adding a temporary fee of $10.00 per class series and $5.00 per workshop to begin to cover additional costs for sanitizing supplies, masks and gloves. We hope you understand our need to do this. Hopefully, by December 31st we will no longer have to ask for this assistance. Thank you for your continued support. Indoor classes will be limited to a maximum of 4 or 5 depending on the class. Outdoor classes (weather permitting) will be limited to 6 in the main tent, and 2 per auxilliary tent.

Stephen is welcoming new students into his Acrylic Class. This is a small class where you will receive individual attention, so you can learn, whether you are new to painting or experienced.

Member Cost: $155.00 + $10.00*
Non-Member: $185.00 + $10.00*
Please request a supply list.

I’ve always been drawing and painting since I can remember. I started off studying Fine Arts at the University of Ottawa and then transferred to The Ontario College of Art in Toronto where I’ve always wanted to go. They had the top designers and illustrators in Canada teaching there back in the ’70’s and an illustrator is what I wanted to be. Graduated after four years of studying illustration and design in 1982 and became a freelance illustrator for the next 35 years working for book and magazine publishers and advertising agencies as well as corporate clients.


I Starting teaching in 2005 and have enjoyed it ever since. It’s fun and a privilege to share what I’ve learned from my instructors and from experience as well. I think it’s our job to pass it on. I enjoy keeping my classes fun and comfortable. Beginners are always nervous to try and afraid of making mistakes, but I make sure that everyone is comfortable and they soon realize that we’re all in it together and we’re all making mistakes, having fun and learning to paint.
