The Irving Art Association offers free basic art classes for adults to get you started in art or in a new medium.
The Free Basics Classes follow a progressive sequence where you will learn basic skills via instructor demo/lecture — exercise —-practice. The series is designed for beginners to a particular art medium as well as mid career artists reviewing technique and not creating finished works. Expect traditional as well as new and nontraditional materials and approaches.

Location: Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, Irving. Held on Thursday evenings from 7 – 9 pm. Directions
“My paintings are a mixture of various techniques that I have taken from Miniatures; even in my realistic oil paintings I show that I am in love with details. My style has a common theme with so much dimension and detail with various colors.”
“I am both a contemporary and traditional artist for over 28 years.
However I think the modern art is one of the most surprisingly complex and profound ever to be created, for it embodies unparalleled etymological detail, reflecting not only in any subject, but also the dreams and imaginative talents of thousands of artists over thousands of years.”
