Vintage Truck Season! (Acrylic Painting )

May 21 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Paint one of Sweetwater Flower Market’s signature vintage trucks with acrylic paint and palette knives.

Warmer months bring sightings of Sweetwater Flower Market’s signature vintage trucks full of flowers at the Old Colorado City Farmers Market and around town. Bring on the nostalgia as we learn to paint with brushes and palette knives to make a replica of Sallie May, a truck named after the owner Kristyn’s grandmother.

For beginners, no experience needed!

Make your art come alive as you add texture and depth to your painting using modeling paste to enhance the flowers. Come join local artist Tyler Dixon as he teaches you how to paint with the spirit of an impressionist in a relaxed atmosphere.
