Acrylic Painting

The Dighton Public Library invites painters of all skill levels for an evening of painting with acrylics on acrylic paintsThursday, June 5 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the lower level of Dighton Town Hall, 979 Somerset Avenue, Dighton MA. Acrylic paints are quick drying and water soluble, which allow the artist to paint at their own pace and comfort level. At the end of the evening, participants will leave with an acrylic painting of their own creation. Dighton resident Jeff Philbrook will share his knowledge of image composition, color mixing and paint application with participants. Mr. Philbrook has also taught acrylic painting at Dighton’s Prime Time, the supportive day program for elder adults. 

Painting supplies will be provided by the library, however, participants are asked to bring in a favorite image (photo, magazine, greeting card, etc.)  that may provide inspiration for their painting. It is also recommended that participants dress in old clothes or wear an apron or smock for this activity. This program is free but registration is required, and can be done by calling the library at 508-669-6421 or registering here.
