Exotic Paintings!

We usually offer two classes on a Saturday. A 10:00-12:00 and an afternoon 1:00-3:00. Our Jan 21 morning class was filled with students painting Van Gogh's "starry Night" and the afternoon class was "Gardens of the Louvre". Exotic locations and exotic subject matter!
They did a terrific job! Most of our new students fast become regulars in our classes and their growth in their art skills is awe inspiring.

Painting the Louvre Garden in acrylics!
 A group of 6 moms joined our  afternoon class and had a great time painting-no kids, no husbands, no worries! Although they forgot their planned bottles of wine, in actuality they were engrossed in their paintings the entire two hours. A few of our regulars were delighted with their results in this challenging subject!
"Starry Night" in acrylics
Painting Van Gogh's "Starry Night" with it's swirls and colors is a different challenge! We love to see teens painting on a Saturday morning with us and we had several including a father with his daughter, a mom with her daughter and an uncle with his 3 nieces.

We like to think that "Friends don't let friends paint alone!" could also be worded "Family members don't let family members paint alone!"

A wonderful memory builder!

Next class January 25, A BYOB event "Hot Air Balloons!"
