ADULT PAINTING CLASS – all media

 

For adults interested in learning painting, or enhancing their current painting skills, several instructors will participate on Tuesday afternoons 1-3 pm, April 12-May 17.

A series of topics will include those requested by students.  “This is more of a casual get-together of friends to be creative, rather than a formal art class,” says Beverly Walker, coordinator.  “The Guild wants to attract painters of all skill levels, in acrylic, watercolor,  oil, and pastels  also .”

 Guest artists from the area will be part-time instructors.

Tuesday, April 12, Sue White will be starting us off with a demonstration of how to begin a composition using the "wipe-off" method. So, bring a new canvas and some inspiration about what subject matter you want to paint.   The process works for still life scenes, landscapes, animal portraits, etc.

 Other Winchester Art Guild members have suggested topics they would be willing to demonstrate.

What topics or techniques would you like to pursue?  Would you like to paint glassware with reflections?   Or a garden scene with birdhouses done in expressionistic style? A wild & crazy abstract?  Play with a new texture product?

Come to one session or several. Cost:  Free to Winchester Art Guild Members.  Non-members:  Single sessions $20 per week, paid on arrival.  Or pay for all 6 sessions at $15/wk.  Bring own supplies, but new beginners may use gallery supplies for first session.

To register, call Beverly Walker 304-916-0644.
