Join us in person for “Classical Music and Painting” on Tuesday, May 10 at 1 PM in the Community Conference Center.

Classical music has inspired some of the world’s most famous masterpieces. Now, you yourself can be inspired in this workshop led by CFCArts Teaching Artist JJ Gonzalez Acosta. Acosta will guide you using your acrylics while listening to classical music, letting the symphony of sounds influence your own masterpiece. Engage with the music and embrace the release of enjoying two art forms simultaneously while learning new techniques.

This program is presented by JJ Gonzalez Acosta and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with CFCArts.
