Thursday, April 6th
Drawing with Oil Pastel
Step-by-Step drawing of a late winter storm on the farm.


   We will bring out the “Impressionist” in you, as we develop this colorful image using nothing but dots. Like the famous artist Georges Seurat, you will see how the rules of pointillism painting bring together colors in a fresh and vibrant manner. This has always been one of the art events most loved by our participants.
COST $20 /adult • 7:00 – 9:00 pm • You must be over 21 to attend.


Thursday, April 20th
Step-by-Step painting of a field of wildflowers.

   This evening we will be highlighting the differences between painting with translucent watercolors and opaque paints. Learning about brush control, the importance of “white space” and keeping your colors bright and translucent, as you see your spring flower immerge. At the end of the evening joy and laughter fills the room, as everyone contemplates the various interpretations of the same image.
