Friday 9AM-12PM, May 26, June 2, June 9, June 16
Meet in a friendly, supportive group to paint outdoors. Classes consist of group demonstrations in oil and individual instruction. All media welcome. Subject matter will include landscape, buildings, seascape, and farm stand objects. Registrants will receive process notes and specific locations such as the windmill, community farm and Fort Weatherill. In case of inclement weather we will meet indoors.
Reserve your spot and attend as many classes as your schedule allows.
“Margaret's enthusiasm is so contagious and her guidance is right on the mark!”
“...an enthusiastic teacher and fun to be with. Lots of demonstrations and all instruction is crystal clear. She inspires good work with her love of color and design.”
"I feel freer."
"...a wonderful combination of expertise (help) and positive criticism"
“Working in a group with many levels of experience has been most satisfying. Very supportive and helpful fellow artists."
“I really feel like I see things differently now and understand color so much more. You are a great teacher. Your enthusiasm is visceral and contagious. All in all, a great experience.”
" I had an epiphany and now I am painting almost every day. You've inspired me in a way that's hard to describe. More than your work, which I love, your energy, appriciation for life and all of its opportunities, your passion for people, place and color. Marvelous! So thank you, again."
Note about oil painting and toxicity: We do not use strong thinners or additives such as turpentine or liquin. Instead we thin our paint with linseed oil especially when working on paintings over 11”x14”. We clean our brushes with murphy’s oil soap and bar soap. When working outdoors we may use odorless mineral spirits mixed 1:1 with linseed, keeping a lid on the jar when not in use.
