April 29, 9:30-12:30  Painting Your Pet in Acrylic~  You love your pets, don't you?

This acrylic painting class will be using transfer paper to transfer an image of your favorite critter to a wood panel, which we will then paint using my basic 4-color plus white palette~  beginners are welcome, and more advanced students will be encouraged to work bigger and by gridding their image rather than transferring~
You'll need to send me a photo of your pet prior to class for me to crop and print it out!

$50 plus materials fee of $0-15 -

materials needed are
-8x8 panels/canvas (larger for Advanced!)
-Golden Heavy Body Acrylics-  Quinacridone Magenta, Primary Yellow, Phthalo Blue GREEN shade AND RED shade, and Titanium White
-black gesso
-transfer paper
-bright brushes sizes 6-10


April 29 Pet Portraits



May 27, 9:30- 1:30  Paint Your House (Or another equally interesting building!)

Buildings are a bit more complex than pets, in that they require some straight lines and some proportions that are a bit futsier-  so in this class, we will use transfer paper to transfer your 8x8 or 8x10 copy of a photo of your chosen building to a black gessoed panel.  We will then use my favorite 4 colors plus white to mix and paint this building.  I'll be coaching you the whole way!
Materials are as above~
$60 for the 4 hour class~


May 27 House Painting



June 3 and June 10, ADVANCED PAINTING OPPORTUNITY 9:30-12:30

On these two consecutive weekends, you are invited to join me (and whoever else is able to come) to paint something you are interested in working on.
This will be a time to look at what people are working on, to have a critique of each other's work, to get you started on something you've been neglecting to start, and to give you a gentle nudge towards painting on your own.  If you've been wanting to start something bigger but wanted some support in starting, this time is for you!  If you need a kickstart to get your summer painting started, this is also for you! I will start our three hour session with a get-to-know-you chat, and then settle you into your work for the day.  Consider signing up for both sessions to get the most out of this time, or just sign up for the one that works for you.
Please come with a project in mind and most of your own materials.  Some experience and a prior class with me is expected~
I am happy to help set you up and will check in with you, but this will not be concentrated one-on-one time!
Do please let me know if there are any questions~

June 3 AND June 10
