Have you ever wanted to create a painting outdoors, on location but didn’t know where to start?
This class is designed to take the fear out of making art outside with a non-traditional twist.

When: Saturday, May 28
Class will last 3 hours:  9:30AM – 12:30PM 
Class limit:  8 
Cost: $25

Class will meet rain or shine as we can set up in view of the flowers under cover.

Creating art outside is like putting together a wonderful meal.

We will learn:

Step 1: Eat desert first – paint the fun part to begin.
Step 2: Savor the Main Course — lay out the design
Step 3: Soup — Determine the Values (lights and darks)
Step 4: hors d’oeuvre — Craft the finished painting and show it off with good presentation
