Direct Painting in Oil
Main Line Art Center, Haverford, PA

February 1st- March 7, 6 weeks
9:30- 12:30
Work from simple still-life set-ups and experiment with limited palettes. Find your own expressive voice and generally complete one painting per session. Great for those who have never painted with oils and those with some experience. More advanced painters can choose to set up their own still life or work from reference material if they prefer. Elaine paints along with the class to demonstrate different techniques.  more info
