Friday, October 20th

Location: Myers Park Presbyterian Church Wellness Center 1073 Providence Rd., Charlotte, North Carolina 28207
10 students max
All levels are welcome. I teach in oil but students are welcome to use acrylic or pastel. In the event you need to cancel, a refund will be issued only if your spot is filled. Exploring painting from direct observation is a valuable way to learn. Artists will choose which still life set up they prefer to paint. There will be a short demonstration as we review the basics including composition, values, edges, color and brush strokes. Each artist will get individual attention according to their level and desire. The process taught transfers to any subject, starting with identifying large shapes, and down to the details in the focal areas. Learn to see these basic shapes and how best to compose the layout on the blank canvas. Bring a lunch or snack. Take a break or work right on through the day. Hope you can join us for a fun filled day of creativity.
As the kids go back to school, it is a good time to get inspired to paint.
Learning is a life long process. And a wonderful journey.
A list of supplies needed will be sent once you register.
Look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your artistic goals.

Make More, Want Less and Do Good...
for the Common Good of everybody.
I just delivered new paintings to Common Good Co in Boone and Blowing Rock, NC. If you have not visited these unique retail venues, be sure to stop in. Jacob, the owner, is a fine artist himself and this unique retail spot doubles as a gallery for a few hand-selected artists, as well as for other handcrafted items for the body and the home. Their mission says it well....cultivate a community for artists and makers to gather, learn and grow their creative callings.
