Painting in Oils
with Margaret Buchte
no class – Sunday, Jan. 20 (library closed)
Sunday, Jan. 27, 2:00-3:30 pm

This is a stress-free, fun “Painting In Oils” class offered to

adults, teens and children of all skill levels.

We will be creating beautiful scenes of the seasonal Berkshire area in oils.

Demonstrations, talks and critiques provided.

Everyone paints at their own pace from their photo or my photo.

Assistance with making a competent observational painting will be the goal,

using correct proportions in an expressive manner.

This class is ongoing on Sunday afternoons, when the library is open.

Registration requested.  However, drop-ins are welcome.
