This 4-week class is designed to give students the tools and confidence needed to begin painting on their own. Also, a great refresher for those who have been away from their easel for a while. We’ll start by reviewing the principles of perspective, proportion and composition then move on to using different brush techniques as well as learning to mix paints. Finally, students will use the skills they’ve learned to create their own works.

- 10 x 12 Canvas (needed on 3rd class)

- Acrylic Paint Set, at least 8 colors (needed on 3rd class)

Instructor: Lori Stetson
Instructor Bio: In Her Words, "My artistic talents developed right alongside this furred and feathered obsession and for thirty years I painted animal portraits. Stepping outside of my comfort zone in 2002 I began producing works from my head and heart and exploring new mediums. Wire sculpting, oil painting and the study of trees and water are all current areas of interest My work has been featured on the covers of an international veterinary magazine and homes across the country. "
