Focus of Part II, PAINTING (4 classes), we'll be improving our acrylic and watercolor technique while working on subjects related to nature.

Length of each class is 1.5 hour. Students may choose to take both courses or just one of them. 

Cost: Drawing $180*, Painting $120*

Enjoy making art all the while trying to guess what exactly you are drawing. That’s right: we are not telling you! The subject will remain a mystery until somebody guesses what it is correctly. It can be you!

Here is how it works: 

  • Guess the subject of your drawing

  • Complete each image (we will be doing a different one each zoom class)

  • Collect all of your completed pictures 

  • Put them together in a unique story to share with the friends

  • Send us a picture of your final composition

  • Sometime in June 2021 (date TBD) attend our virtual exhibit opening with a suitable cocktail in hand.
