I am going to be teaching a workshop right after Christmas. If anyone wants to try their hand at painting, this is the class for you. We will only use 3 colors plus white. It's so much fun! We start of varnishing the paper so that we can do some fun stuff with the painting later on. Then we do an abstract underpainting with just the 3 colors. Next, we develop the painting into something more representational, but in a loose way. Even if you've never painted, it's something that is not hard to do and the results are always quite interesting, never what you quite expect. The class is for 3 days, Thursday Dec 26, Friday Dec 27 and Monday Dec 30. It's from 10 am - 2 pm. Everyone should bring a bagged lunch each day. The class will be held at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Arlington. There is still space available, so if you are interested, you can sign up on the Arlington Artists Alliance .website : www.arlingtonartistsalliance.org
or call me and I'll help you get signed up.
If you'd like to do it , but can't come all 3 days, let me know and we will make some kind of arrangements. I'll put up the paintings that the participants do after the workshop is over.
