Anoka Halloween 100th Anniversary Paint on Canvas SOLD OUT

Anoka Halloween 100th Anniversary Acrylic Painting

Enjoy a night of fun and take home an exclusive Halloween painting created just for the Anoka Halloween 100th Anniversary!

Rumriver Art Center presents a special fundraising event for Anoka Halloween Inc™. A step-by-step method will be used to create your own painting on a 12″ x 16″ stretched canvas. Everyone will start at the same point and at the end each canvas will be very different. RRAC teaches a layer method with acrylic paint, where you create your painting by using several layers over every part of the canvas. All materials will be provided. All you have to do is bring yourself. Each participant will receive an exclusive 100th Anniversary sticker for the back of their painting and an Anoka Halloween goody bag.

You may do this class in-person at Rumriver Art Center or virtually at-home through a live Zoom class. If you do the virtual class, you will pick up your class materials at Rumriver Art Center.

Date: Thursday, October 22
Time: 6pm – 8pm
Cost: $40 (non-refundable, due upon registration)
Location: At home via Zoom and in-person at Rumriver Art Center North Studio, 2665 4th Ave, suite 108, Anoka
