Fast-drying and easy to clean-up, acrylics will allow you to easily transport your finished work home to admire when you are done with each day’s painting!Open to all levels. Painting locations featuring shade, restrooms, and other amenities may include Clark Park in West Philly, Wissahickon Park in Mt. Airy, and Bartram's Garden in Southwest Philadelphia.
