Prerequisites: All levels
Contact Information: email@example.com
Class Size: Min 7 Max 12
Sign-up: Please contact Lee directly to see if you can be added to this class.
Deadline: January 26, 2022
Cancellation Policy: Cancellation after 1/26 will result in a $50 cancellation fee. If a health issue arises, that will be taken into consideration and the fee may be eliminated. Teachers rely on numbers to carry a class and drop-outs at the last minute create problems.
Class Content: Participants will produce a painting (either 13″ x 19″ if experienced) or two smaller ones (if this is a first attempt). All need to have floral images and personal photos are preferred. An alternative is to seek a good floral composition on the internet, however, the resulting art cannot be regarded as original for competition purposes. I am willing to check possible references to give advice on composition. I can print the selected sizes on my Epson printer for a fee. The goal is to have one or two frameable works of art upon the end of the class, which may be used in the Tellico Village Art Guild Exhibit in the Spring. Demonstrations given in pouring and negative painting up close and personal, and individual guidance/critiques will be given. Contact Lee with questions.
