You will learn the steps to begin and complete a painting.  These are informative and fun classes with steps to create a still-life painting using medium of your choice; watercolor, traditional oil or water mixable oils or acrylic paints (your choice).   You can work on your own special project or the project of the day that I provide.   All levels welcome, some experience helpful. Our style is painterly and spontaneous. Non toxic supplies are simple and inexpensive.  Minimum supply list given upon registration.
