6-week course. Each week you will learn to paint a different subject on an 8 x 10 canvas using only 2 brushes and 50 strokes or less! This fun course will stimulate your power of observation and mixing colors “on the fly” on the canvas.
Tuition includes an 8×10 panel and paint. If you are new to this course, a binder with handouts, and a color wheel will be provided for $10. Students should bring their own palette and brushes, or you may purchase from the instructor Masterson Stay Wet Palette ($18.00) and a basic set of acrylic brushes ($21.00) at beginning of the session.

“When imagining a composition, there are several ingredients: the medium, me (the other medium), and
(the mystery) the paintings themselves, which often seem to push forth their own story.”
