Art Classes @ Patriot Place

Due to many requests from visitors to the art gallery at Patriot Place, four of the artists there will offer varied painting classes at different times this fall, both in watercolor or oil and acrylic. For more info or to register, please contact the instructor for the class of your choice.

Loosening Up with Oils or Acrylics (for Ages 16 and up)
This class is for anyone who would like to try a more “PAINTERLY” approach to landscape and/or figurative works. 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.
