Join us for a spirited adventure painting from direct observation of still lifes and plein air as weather permits. Learn to see and compose paintings by understanding relationships of color, value , shape and edge.  Experiment with other materials and methods to complement the beautiful qualities of WC.  Have fun, deepen your enjoyment of your art and learn new techniques, while benefiting from painting in a group.  Each class has ample time for a critique of the day’s work as well as paintings done over the week.
