• Express yourself with Acrylics – Saturdays, January 19 to February 23, 10:30 am-12:30 pm. Learn different ways to start planning a painting and complete it. Learn about color mixing, mediums and ways to use acrylics. Experience the excitement of experimentation and loosening up with Christine Harrison, member artist and Gallery Manager for Art Accelerated. Working in a group with people who share your interests leads to unexpected insights – join the fun and express yourself! This class is held at the Art Accelerated Gallery, 1906 3rd Street, Tillamook. Cost is $45 and includes supplies.

Research has shown that engaging in creative artistic expression, including expressive writing, visual arts, music, engagement and movement-based creative expression can have many positive impacts on health. Creative expression can improve mood, reduce chronic pain, and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Some studies also show relationships between creative expression and improved healing time and reduced risk of chronic disease.
