Painters' Studio is now TWO fun classes
Spring session there will be TWO classes of acrylic painting at ELM. Acrylic Painting for Beginners has been so popular there has never been enough space for all who want to join. And those who join never want to leave.
SO… a new class, Painters’ Studio, will begin Spring session in addition to the Beginners class. In the Studio class, there will be space for ten experienced painters to work independently without instruction. This will give some longtime painting students the opportunity to graduate to the studio and continue to paint in a group. All painters bring their own easels, canvases, paints and brushes. The setting prompts painters to share ideas, experience and inspiration as they paint. The Studio class encourages its members to paint in a wide variety of styles and subjects. While painting can be a serious endeavor, it is also lots of fun. The members of the Studio enjoy their work and being with other painters. Two past sessions in this format were well-received.
At the same time, the Beginners class taught by Kate Posey and Joan Rockwell will have space for ten students in a room around the corner. This will provide more students the opportunity to learn to paint with acrylics. Both classes will meet from 9:30 to 11:30.
Carolyn Wailes will be moderator for the new Painter’s Studio class. She first began painting in acrylics at ELM in 2014 after taking drawing classes for two years. She was a student in the beginners acrylic class for several sessions and later assisted in teaching the class. She missed getting to paint with the class and looks forward to painting with the new studio group. She is still trying to find her style and learn new techniques and knows the Studio will support those efforts.
We hope the large display of paintings by the Winter acrylics class at Show and Tell will inspire some new students to join the Beginners class and prompt some returning painters to join the Studio group. That way we’ll have twice the fun and twice the artwork.
