Spring Still Life and Landscape Classes

My Painting the Landscape includes painting the animals, architecture, people, cars, etc. of the more populated areas versus trees, streams, mountains. Tackling painting outside adds to the challenge but sure makes for more exciting (and less perfect) end results. Class will be held indoors in the case of inclement weather.

A prerequisite for the class is bringing along a sense of humor. And, be ready for an adventure.
If you're really a beginner, I recommend taking my Still Life class first.
