Loosening Up with Oils or Acrylics (for Ages 16 and up)

Painting from photographs and by studying the work of the “Master Impressionists” we will learn to “SEE” like an artist. Students should have some drawing skills. This class is all about painting in a very relaxed atmosphere and it is my hope to inspire and help your creativity.
