Would you like to learn to paint or to improve your skill level? I'm teaching a painting class, FREE OF CHARGE!
Date/Time: Wednesday May 3rd from 6-8PM
Location: Harvard, MA, Unitarian Church Fellowship Hall
We will review the basics of composition, color mixing, and paint handling. I'll do a short demo and will have paintings in various stages of completion to show you. You can paint in water color, acrylic, oil, or pastel.
This class is limited to the first twelve respondents, so if you're interested, click the Sign Up button below. Let me know if you need supplies or will bring your own.
If you're interested in classes this summer or fall, but can't make the free class, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up at the bottom of the page for my newsletter.
One Day Painting Workshop
My goal in teaching is one-on-one instruction that you can take home and use on your own work. We'll cover the basic fundamentals of composition, values, and paint handling. You'll learn how to mix clean color and use it effectively. And we'll start with a solid drawing, which is the foundation for painting. Students will work on their own projects and leave with at least one small finished painting. Beginners and intermediate painters are welcome. Mediums include oil, acrylic, pastel, and water color.
This class runs from 9-12 and 1-4.

Plein Air Painting in Maine
Discover a love for plein air painting with me on the beautiful coast of Maine. The plein air tradition, popularized by the impressionists in France, is a wonderful way to embrace nature and enjoy your creative side out of doors. We will review basic fundamentals - value, composition, and color; learn how to paint within Mother Nature's time constraints; and pick up tricks of the trade for painting out of doors. This workshop is ideal for those who have not painted outside previously. The workshop will consist of two days of instruction followed by an optional day of painting with me at additional locations.
July 12-14 Yarmouth, ME
August 16-18 Yarmouth, ME
