Two additional classes are designed for students working at all skill levels. “Mixed Media with Water Based Paint” is designed to expand one’s ability to express one’s self beyond the ordinary. The series will be held on Fridays, May 8, 15, 22 and 29, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
“Unlocking the Mysteries of Shading and Shadows,” a one-day class open to students using any medium, will take place on Saturday, May 9, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
As previously announced, Judith Becker will lead a special spring class, “Capturing the Beauty of Trees,” on Saturday, April 18, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Celebrate the season by learning to capture the colors, shades, textures and open spaces of different trees.
